    The Official Jango Wes Iraq Update Thread

    Hi everybody!

    I just wanted to drop in and say hi! I am currently in Kuwait and I will be heading up to Baghdad in the next couple of days. Right now, everything is going smoothly. The internet connection out here is slow as heck, so I can't upload any pics right now. But I'll definately upload some when I get to Iraq.

    Wes

    Eric,

    Nope, the US phones work on different frequency than the ones over here. Kinda like NTSC and PAL.
    I'm sending you the pics to post if you don't mind.

    I actually managed to spend $1,000 on hot topic's website when I was over there. Hard to believe but I actually miss being there

    Jango_Wes, stay safe, keep your head down, ect ect. Keep track of all your paperwork, I almost didn't get disability because my 1SG lost a sickcall slip.

    You're gonna have to change your location from "Seeker's basement" to something like "Sadaam's basement". Or how about "Location: I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you..."

    Re: Greetings from Kuwait

    Nice suggestion on the location, thanks!

    Not only do we have internet, we have Subway, a coffee shop, Burger King, KFC and several other stores. We are going to Camp Falcon in Baghdad and they have some of the same services.

    For those wanting to send snail mail ( a Soldier LOVES to get mail) my addy will be:
    SSG Wes Fussell
    B Co/4-1 BSTB
    Unit #42530
    APO AE 09361

    If you look close, you can see the camels in the background.

    Re: Greetings from Kuwait

    I know you said there's a few restaurants over there and a few other bastions of the civilized Western world, but if you want any particular goodies from the old US of A, post a wish list.

    I think this bunch of bucket heads on this site can send a few items.

    Stay safe and fight the good fight.
