Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Tuesday, June 29, 2004

Hey guys. So I guess you all know now about the changeover in power. We haven't seen any serious attacks. Supposedly there were a couple mortars that came in last night, but I never heard them, none of us heard them. I do have a story for you all though. One of our guys just got back from Baghdad where he visited for a day. They flew down there and back. On their way back someone shot a rocket at their helicopter and it got so close that the sparks from the back of the rocket got all in the helicopter. They had to land really quick and grab a fire extinguisher so that nothing would catch on fire. Close call, but thank God no one was hurt. Most of you know that I play guitar. Well me and another guy got together and started playing. Then a girl down here started singing with us and we've been goofing off with new songs and playing around ever since. Well our Batallion Commander found out that we did this so she decided to sign us up for a talent show being held in Anaconda (Balad, Iraq). The show is in a couple weeks, I won't tell you when until it's over, but we're going to be flown up there to play for this thing. I'm pretty excited, I've never been flown anywhere to play before, so it'll be fun. But I'll let you guys know how it goes. Well, that's it for now. Thank you so much for your support and prayers. God bless.

EDIT: I just wanted to add a couple more things. 1st of all. The changeover before schedule seems to have been a good idea. You know when you get ready to run and you're about to take off sprinting at the starting line and someone shouts go before you expected it so you take that one step that's all messed up and then the rest of the run is messed up? Well hopefully that's what this thing did to the Iraqi attacks. That's what we're hoping at least. Second, I got my laptop, so I'm going to start playing around with my video camera so hopefully I can get some better footage. Well that's it for now. Love you guys. Later.
