Hey everyone. Another day in the desert. Not much new. We're still temporarily moved into the trailers. But no one has given us the word on whether or not we get to stay. So we'll see eventually. Other than that not much has changed really. Still working as much as ever. A few people got moved up on the R&R slots and we have one person that is going stateside for a medical reason (non-combat related) so that's one more slot open. That pushes me to the second person to leave when we get our new dates which is supposed to be Aug. 20th. I'll be sure to let you all know. Anyway, that's it. I hope all is going well for everyone else. God bless and thanks for your support.

Hey everyone. So our generator is still down. I think now instead of worrying with it anymore that they have decided to just go ahead and put us in trailers. We slept in them for the first time last night. They are pretty nice…very small, but at least you only have one other roommate to worry about noise and stuff. I thought I was going to hate it at first because of how small it was, but I really didn’t mind it once I got there. They haven’t decided whether or not we’re going to stay in them or move back once the generators are fixed, but chances are that we are just going to stay in the trailers. Which I don’t mind at all. Other than that, not much going on. Still just working everyday and waiting around for R&R. Can’t wait. Well, I guess that’s it. I have a meeting to go to so I have to split. I love you guys and I thank you all so much for your support. God bless and talk to you all later.

Hey everyone. Not much new around here. Our generator quit because someone didn't put oil in it and it has a sensor that shuts it off when the oil is low. That's not that bad because we went ahead and put oil in it, but then we found out the starter is bad so it won't start now. That's making for some VERY hot stuffy nights with 20 men in a closed bay with no moving air. I think I have a battery operated fan that my mom sent me that I'm going to break out tonight for my own personal enjoyment :) I heard that my videos came in. I hope you all got to see them. I know the one of me talking is pretty long, but I figure 45 minutes of stories for 6 months of my life isn't all that bad. Other than that, things are normal. Working on vehicles and when one leaves two more come in. I guess that's just the way it goes. Alright, well that's it. Thank you all so much for your support. God bless you all. Peace.
