Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Tuesday, March 16, 2004

Hey everyone. Another day in the desert. Which I may add is very cold at nights. At least in Kuwait it was nice and warm in the nights. You could sit outside and chat and not have to cover up like you were back at home in the winter. It’s very cold here though at nights and we have no heat in the tent though, which makes for interesting sleeping conditions. I can literally see my breath most nights before I go to bed…so fun fun. Anyway, not much action today. We had a “drill.” It would remind you of a tornado drill at school, you put your stuff on and go to a hard building. They never tell you if it’s just a drill or an actual threat, but no one really cares. The drills are for when there could a threat of air raid or mortar attack. There are no real threats of air raids, but the mortar and rocket attacks are things we do have to watch for. Other than that, I went to the post office today for some training and remembered why I wanted to be a mechanic and not a clerk. But what can you do really? I guess I just work where they need me. Anyway, that’s about all I have for today, pray for peace and God bless.
