Georgeo off to Afghanistan

Hey, Georgeo, it’s quiet here in Microsoft’s Silicon Valley cafeteria too (he wrote it’s quiet at headquarters), but people are working and the Starbucks is open. I’ll be here all day trying to catch up on Channel 9 tasks and email. 131 waiting, better get to it.

Anyway, Georgeo Pulikkathara is the guy who runs MSDN Webcasts (he’s the one who hires my wife’s firm, if I remember right). On his blog he wrote that he’s about to ship off to Afghanistan. It’s yet a reminder of the price we all are paying due to military actions overseas. I can’t imagine being forced to move overseas and leave my job and my family. Our wishes are with you Georgeo, come back safely!

  1. I don’t know Georgeo Pulikkathara, but wish him and his family well and appreciate his service.

    Regarding your comment, I’m not sure any of us can imagine being “forced to move overseas”, or “forced” to do anything really, but I’m not sure that’s an accurate characterization of being called back to active duty to fulfill a voluntary obligation.
