things have been ok out here lately. its getting really hot now...i dont even care to look at a thermomater. Not too much going on here. a few updates though... my december leave is now up in the air...because of the dust storms no birds can fly...therefore those people dont leave on time for their leave so it pushes everyone back one day...we have had 10 days of red air. so that would push me back to december 18th now...bullshit i know. so we will have to wait and see if this gets moved around to try to fix the problem... im as lost as you are in this situation. in other news ive heard that we push past the wall in december so that should be fun haha. Ive decided on becoming a flight medic when i get out of iraq. its something that i can make alot of money with in the private sector and something that i would be very happy with... ill drop my packet and go to school for 4 weeks then be a medic on a medivac blackhawk....how cool. i feel a little relieved that i finally made up my mind. This way ill be able to have some sort of life back home...well heres some random pics from our patrols...not too much going on so ill give some background on the pics.
This is Stalher. hes our grenadier, and AG (assistant gunner) he carrys all the ammo for our big gun that another guy carrys. the little kid in the forground is Lenny...well we actually dont know his name so we just called him Lenny. he didnt say much but for about 15 minutes he was Staff Sgt Richwien's best friend (pic above Stalher)
The girl in the green dress was so intrigued by my camera... she didnt move or anything. usally the women in this country arnt as welcoming of photography as the boys are. but i thought this turned out pretty good
As we were questioning some people on the street SGT Consintine was moving around to get a better position for security. SGT Consintine is one of our team leaders
And well this was me crammed into the bradley while delivering 3 generators to people's business' that were affected by the combat going on
