Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Hey everyone. Sorry I have been away for so long. I'm going to get good at this again. We have been really busy, but everything is fine. It has been quiet here for a couple days now...almost too quiet to coin an overused term. But I really haven't heard anything in like 4 or 5 days so it really is getting a little bit scary. But if I have to complain, I'd rather complain about the silence. Everything else is fine. We got beds in finally, so we don't have to sleep on cots anymore. We have to spend the rest of the day fixing everything in our rooms so that the bay is somewhat uniform. You know the military. But it's ok, the beds are pretty decent and they make for better nights rests. This week has flown by, and I'm hoping for the months to do the same. The faster the better. Well, I'm going to run, but thank you all for your support. Also, I received a care package from the PR's at Appalachian State, so I wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU for that. Great stuff. Also, for everyone else that has sent mail, I am greatly appreciative. You can never get too much. Thank you Thank you Thank you. God bless.

Hey everyone. Sorry for how long it took to write back but we had another "incident." We got mortared in the middle of the night a couple nights ago...there were casualties, 5 I think. They were on the other side of the base but they shut down communications for awhile. Then Sunday we got a great wakeup call. A mortar landed about 300 meters from our quarters. There were a few people hurt that were walking/driving by, but no one was killed. Since then it has been quiet, so I'm thinking they must be negotiating again...we never hear anything until the attack actually happens. Today was a busy day, I worked harder today than I have since we got here. But I DID GET MY GUITAR IN WOOOO HOOO!!! I was so excited. So that made a bad week really good. But anyway, I guess that's all I have. Keep those soldiers in your thoughts and prayers who gave their life fighting for our freedoms. Keep the twenty or so that got injured in that attack along with the 4 or 5 that got hurt in the attack near our quarters. Thank you and God bless.
