Good idea, go out the wire to rape, pillage, and steal all the Afghani fresh fruit you can find. Hearts and minds kids! Hearts and minds.

You know you'd do it! Hell most of the farms are abandoned cause of the fighting anyway.

Wow almost a month since I put something up here... been slow... Had a pretty good fight a couple weeks ago, thought I might receive a new hole in my body courtesy of the Taliban. Thankfully that didn't happen. It was probably our biggest fight yet, "there I was, on a roof top in the middle of now where with a machine gun... taliban to left, taliban to the right, taliban to the front..." Nothing makes you pucker more then hearing bullets wiz around.

In other news, I have managed to piss off my platoon sergeant something fierce. I was the cause of him getting yelled at by a full bird colonel. It still hasn't really ended, and it isn't ending well. Among other things to piss him off, that was pretty much the cherry on top that earned me a crash course lesson in leading soldiers to much so they hate you.

Days seem to drag by and blend together out here.

What a shitty patrol we had. Two of the guys from my platoon got wounded, one's still going through different surgeries. Plus they got really good at shooting RPG's, I about had a meeting with Jesus myself. I'm putting in two of my guys for awards, I hope they go through, but with all the damn red tape now-a-days we'll see. Hopefully we don't go through that again.

Protip: next time there's trouble, cut your buddy and then get away as fast as you can. . .wait, no, that's scuba diving with sharks. Nevermind.

That reminds me, we should go scuba diving when you get back!

Well, fighting season is just about done and the score is Stjames' platoon: 30+ kills probable (about 25 confirmed) with who knows how many wounded, and Taliban: 3 wounded. So we lose, but not badly and we had fun doing it. (the third was actually wounded before I got here) We would have won if we could have got away without any wounded, but thus is war.

Good, but not as much fun as the ongoing negotiations to double-team your wife.

P.S. I'll agree to double team you with your wife as long as I get the ass.

Despite what you may think, and what he wants you to think, deep down Med is a nice person. Though he'll probably yell at me for saying that. He is the only person from our old unit that I still stay in touch with on a regular basis, partly thanks to wow, but also cause he's a good friend. I've even met his parents and friends from college... sounds gay, but it wasn't. Eventually I'll track him down for another visit.

Try getting shot. Spend a few weeks in Germany playing WoW, then come home for free license plates and permanent handicapped parking. Right leg, I think.

I'd rather go with left, I don't own a stick shift anymore. And believe me, it has been temping, and one of those lil fuckers almost did get me. Had a round hit a wall I was standing behind only about a foot low or it would have been in my shoulder/side/arm. Mental note: when getting shot at, don't stand up where they can see you holding a radio.

Really? How many months deployed, and you STILL are just learning not to stand near the RTO or terp? I should shave your face with the side of my boot.

Not much to really add here. There is still the occasional fight now and then, but mostly it's been towards the Afghan army. Apparently there are rumors that some of the Afghan soldiers have raped some of the women in the area so they're getting the special focus of what ever taliban is left during the winter. Plus with potential "peace talks" between the taliban and the Afghan gov't things have been rather dull.

On a sad note, they're turning off the wifi in the next couple of days. I've heard a few different reasons, ranging from the sergeant major is tired of hearing people complain that it gets turned off when someone is wounded because we pay our own money for the service, to the ridiculous rumor that it will help boost moral because when it's turned off people are sad. So they'll get rid of if completely so people aren't sad since there's nothing to miss.

But on a good note, I'll be gone from here about the same time they shut it down and by the time I get back I won't have much time left on the little base and will be moving back to one of the big bases that does have wifi muhahaha. In about a week I'll be stateside binging on good food, alcohol, love and fast internet :D
