Iraq War – Operation Iraqi Freedom War 66 – Lemonier Djibouti and Kenya – 2004

There’s a lot of things on my mind. I got back to Djibouti, Africa on the 25th of Feb. I guess I got kind of lucky, seeing how I got stuck in Baltimore for 3 days and Germany for another

I went on leave on 2 Feb, and I had an awesome time on leave. Right now I’m actually getting some time to sit down, relax, and just be free enough to reflect and write about the past 2 weeks.

Iraq War – Operation Iraqi Freedom War 64 – Lemonier Djibouti and Kenya – 2004

We invaded a country on the 20th of Jan. No one knows about it because it’s top secret. But we have connections and ears. Apparently it was a quick insertion that lasted throughout the night and they came back out

Happy New Years. This holiday season has been anything but jolly. I don’t remember anything special this time around. I think it gave me a new perception of Christmas and New Year’s. I remember getting my guitar out and started

Iraq War – Operation Iraqi Freedom War 62 – Lemonier Djibouti and Kenya – 2003

I don’t know when I’ll be able to go on leave. I’m wanting to go, of course, sometime on January, 20 Jan or whenever, but anything is good when it comes with getting out of here. Djibouti is nicer than

MERRY FUCKING XMAS. This has been possibly the most uneventful Xmas in that we didn’t do anything festival and the most eventful in that we did nothing but work. On Xmas Eve we finished packing up pretty much, but we

Iraq War – Operation Iraqi Freedom War 60 – Camp Arifjan, Kuwait – 2003

Yesterday was a big day. I know I haven’t written for a while but for a good reason, or good reasons. I’ve been busy with finishing up with schoolwork, served my Article 15 sentence, sending off Xmas presents and what

Possible reprisal, but nothing came out.  Disappointment.  Ask two questions before checking 3a.  Did you do it, and can others prove that you did it.  Did everything by the book, didn’t have to read me my rights unless I was

Wow.  What a day.  You know, sometimes I look back.  And I think about how far I came.  At the same time, I look at how I’m still where I was before.  Back in February, I would have never guessed

Iraq War – Operation Iraqi Freedom War 54 – Camp Arifjan, Kuwait – 2003

Yesterday was one of the most physically gruelling days of my life. I have no idea how I did it, nor do I actually want to do it again. On the 7th, we had a briefing. Everyone in our unit
