Be safe soldier.
Be safe soldier.
I guess it's true what my great-grandpa told me from when he was in the Marines (WWI) - They just use the same mud over and over again for each war Take it easy over there and stay safe!
Wow Wes..I just got light of this. Stay safe bro. Will we see at the next Dragon Con? How long will you be stationed there?
Stay safe and thank you for keeping us safe.
Hang in there bud.
Thank you for your service to the country.
Keep up the updates, it's good to hear from you!
We're all proud of you my friend.. "Go'n get some" !
Stay safe bro!
Keep safe brother, and tell everyone there we appreciate what you guy(gals) are doing for us, and thank God you stepped forward to carry the load for all of us, like soldiers and sailors have always done for our great Country. Keep your head down, powder dry, and bring some order to the Empire, and come home safely.
You have my salute!
stay safe man who knows maybe I'll see ya there in about 4-6 months.
Thanks for the kind words guys. Believe it or not, I've been in worse places (if you take away the people trying to kill me).
But honestly, I really do appreciate everyone wishing me well.
I don't think I'll make D*C this year, but I'm DEFINATELY gonna hit D*C 08.
Hey everyone. Since Wes hasn't posted an update in a while, thought I would. He's doing well. I get to talk to him about once or twice a week if we're lucky, but I usually get an email from him almost every day. Tried to upload a pic, but couldn't find the right image hosting site.
Try www.imageshack.us that is what I usually use.
Anyhoo, I have a metric butt ton of pics I will be sending to ya on a thumbdrive since the service is so slow here.
Things are going well over here. We started missions the other night and I am working 18-20 hour days. Right now I am at the infantry unit HQ and they have internet access.
Oh yeah, I was selected for promotion to E-7/Sergeant First Class!
Good to see you on the boards baby.

Congrats on the promotion!
Hope everything good, Wes.
Yeah, everything is going good. We've started missions and we have been extremely successful. I wish I could say more about it, that's all I'm allowed to.
I generally work 18-20 hour days, but I was blessed with a 27 hour day on Monday. The days do seem to bleed together over here, but you get used to it I guess.
I get pinned on Monday, so I'm really looking forward to that. Brandy will have a lot of pics to post once I get a chance to mail off the picture disc.
Now, if I could only get FettPride to answer my PMs.............
Congrats on your pinning on Wes! Way to go troop!
Wes! What's up bud. Watch out for those Sarlaac's out there....but if you do find one, be sure to check inside for some really nice armor.
Just wanted to give a quick update. We finally got a new internet cafe so we have highspeed internet now. I can also upload some pics.
This is me at one of Saddam's old palaces. I saw this window and thought: "DEATH STAR!"
This is the "Mother of all Mosques". Supposedly, it was going to be bigger than the one at Mecca, which is a no-no.
Here's me and my LT at my promotion.
I have a metric butt-ton of pics, but that's all for now. I'm still alive, kicking and fighting the good fight. Can't really say what I do, but I can say my team is very successful at finding bad guys so the infantry can catch 'em. Or kill 'em if they put up a fight.
Later guys and gals
I don't know you, but thanks for keeping us updated! Glad you are doing well! Stay safe and take care!
It's good to see your smiling face again. Only four more months!! Be safe. I love ya.
Good to see you're doing okay
