When I first put on the ticker for Allen's homecoming, I made it for the NLT date. He has been saying earlier the whole time, but I didn't want to be disappointed if it was later. Naturally, it could still change, but, at this point, he should be home in 2 weeks! The newest information is that he will leave Iraq on the 4th of August, and be home on the 6th. Allen has been saying the 6th through the 8th all along, so I am still going to countdown to the 8th. Anyway, I'm rambling somewhat, but it is very soon now!
