Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Saturday, October 09, 2004

Hey everyone. So today was pretty interesting. Number 1, I had my Iraqi guy that I was guarding and we got NOTHING done thanks to another group of Iraqis. So I just sat there for 8 hours trying to stay awake.

Then we got hit. A bunch of times. First there was an IED right outside the gate, then there were a bunch of incomings. Luckily, none hit inside the gates. They were all on the outskirts.

We're supposed to get the last person from the 449th back from R&R soon. The last platoon that gets to go has sent off about 5 people now. That means two things. Number 1, they get to go on R&R and before, we weren't sure. And number 2, times ticking away. It's great stuff.

Well, that's all I have. I hope you all are doing well. I love you and thank you for your support. God bless you all. PO.

Hey everyone. So for the next week I have to guard an Iraqi guy that's cleaning a huge trash pile out side of distro. Not that bad of a job, just boring. I can get used to anything though. I got burned a little bit today, but it's not bad here. When you get burned here, it goes in the next morning. Sunburn just isn't bad here for some reason.

I'm still getting used to everything. My buddy left yesterday for R&R so now I have the trailer all to myself for the next 3 weeks. That'll be really cool. Whitney and I got A LOT done on the movie last night. We're basically done except for one more shot. Then it's on to the special features. That's right, we're going all out on this one.

Honestly, nothing else is different. We're trying to get the internet in our trailers. That'll be great for keeping up w/ everyone, but it's a pain and it's not very reliable right now. So I guess I'm going to go for now. Love you guys and I appreciate your support and prayers. Talk to you soon. Peace and God bless.

Hey everyone. A couple changes over the last couple days. Mainly, I wanted to congratulate 2 of my buddies for making E-5. They should be getting pinned today so congrats to them.

My platoon sergeant made it back from R&R last night so he informed me that my packet is in and he'll find out when the board is, so it should be soon. I'm in no rush though.

We're still filming and we're pretty close to being done, and I'm running still every other morning so I'm kind of happy that I'm actually sticking with it.

Well, I guess that's it. I can't read your comments until I get on a different computer, but when I do get on another computer, I'll read them. Alright, love you guys. I'll talk to you later. Thanks for your prayers and support. God bless.
