Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Friday, July 16, 2004

Hey everyone.  Not that much new.  Things have pretty much been the same around here.  There was an open mic night tonight where I was going to try to gain back some of my dignity from getting booed off stage, but when we showed up we found out  you have to be in a certain uniform, and one of the people with us wasn't in the right uniform.  So we had to leave.  But it's ok, it's going on tomorrow night too so we're going to go and enjoy then.  I sent some videos to my mother and father and Amy.  So when they show up, you guys can probably con them into copies if you want them.  They are videos of me telling stories of things that have happened since I've been here and one video of me playing guitar.  I also sent pictures with the one that went to Amy so there should be new pictures up in a couple of weeks or however long it takes for the CD to get to the states.  Well, that's it.  I appreciate all of your support.  And God bless you all.  Peace.

Hey everyone. I had guard today. And I got roasted, which was fun. Despite my attempts to stay under shade, apparently you can get sunburned from just looking at the heat. I had a little bit of lotion that I used to stop my face from getting that bad, but my arms and the back of my neck got it pretty good. It'll be gone in a day or two though, so no harm done. I actually had fun guarding the Iraqis again today. They are, for the most part, very friendly and it's interesting to try to learn their culture and even more interesting trying to figure out what each other are saying through a language barrier. It's challenging but it makes for some interesting misinterpretations. Anyway, I guess that's all I have now. Nothing else has happened. I hope you all are well, I miss you all so much but hopefully I'll see you all in a month or so for R&R. Alright, well God bless and stay safe. Peace.

Hey everyone. Not much new to report. I do have a story for you though. The guy that's in charge of supply made a convoy up to Anaconda so he could get more stuff. Well, on the way back down they got shot at by an RPG. An RPG is a Rocket Propelled Grenade. It's basically like a small rocket. Anyway, the RPG went right in between two of their vehicles and hit some factory on the other side. I'll be it was enough to get his heart beating and he said that when they got to where they were going, they guy that ran the gun truck that it almost hit was shaking uncontrollably, as I would probably would be. So another close one but again, no one hurt that we know about. Other than that, nothing new. Hope things are well with all of you. Things here are basically the same. Well, I love getting comments so thanks so much for all of your support. God bless you all and I'll talk to you later. Peace.

Hey everyone. So I had yesterday off and today was a half day since it's Sunday so it's been nice catching up on some sleep. We had to take some classes today, that was easy enough. Then we got some new issue. We got a lot of cold weather stuff, and some of it we have to turn back in before we get stateside so it makes no since that we get it now. I guess the nights get pretty cold here in the winter, but some of this stuff is stuff I would wear skiing. But some of it I get to keep and I have every intention of using for the ski season when I get back. I can't wait. But soon enough. Well, I guess that's it. I hope all is well for you guys. I love you and I hope to hear from you all soon. Peace.
