Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Monday, June 07, 2004

Oh what a day. But we won't start there. Sorry that I haven't written in a while, it's partly lack of motivation, and partly that our truck was on a convoy so I didn't have a ride. Well, I'm sure that you all heard about the car bomb that happened on Sunday. If you didn't, let me fill you in. We have been training the Iraqi army for a while now, and we have them guarding part of our fence and one of our gates. Well, Sunday a suicide bomber (I think) drove a car bomb into that gate. It killed 4 or so Iraqi soldiers and injured 2 or so of ours. No American soldiers were killed, but there were lives lost so it's never a good thing. Right after that they shot a mortar, but I don't think that hit anyone. So all of this happened really early in the morning so we all got to wake up to a thunderous "boom." We call them "Iraqi Alarm Clocks." Other than that there hasn't been any attacks that I know of. The mail was coming on a regular basis, but after that they shut down the gates so we didn't get mail until 7:30 pm tonight. We got everything done in about 2 hours because all of the other people that usually don't work in distro came down to help, but it still was very uncool working that late. But we got it done and now we get to rest until tomorrow when we're expecting another 4 connexes of mail. That's about it I suppose. I got some really good pictures of the tents that got hit in the mortar attacks that happened a week ago. Good holy tents and chairs. I'll send the pictures whenever I get enough to be significant. Well, that's it. I hope all is well and I thank you for all of your prayers and support. Oh also, I got a package today from the Financial Aid Center at ASU and I wanted to thank you guys so much for your support. You all are awesome. Thank you so much. Ok well, goodnight all, God bless and I'll talk to you all later.
