Lovely weather, beautiful scenery.
I can get to a FOB (Camp Fallujah) only once a week, if I'm lucky.

Otherwise, I live and operate IN the city itself. I own about a square mile.
Hooray!

It's great.
I'll try to post pics in a week or so.

"My men" are all Iraqis. Trust me, you don't want me to bring any of them back to the States.

Actually, they're great warriors.
They just have a few bad habits that wouldn't work weel in our culture.

Like others have said, stay safe, we appreciate it (some of us really do 'get' that what you're doing over there keeps us from doing it over here), you're in our prayers, and if you need anything - anything at all - let us know.

Let us know if you need anything (I still owe someone oever there a care package).

Since you own a square mile of Falluja any chance you can open a McDonalds or better yet a KFC?

Be safe, Cin...watch your back too. Heard stories about the insurgents infiltrating moles into the Iraqi armed forces, so watch your friends just as carefully as your enemies.
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 9:07:16 AM EDT
Long time no hear. Have fun over there, stay safe. I heard on the news that the minute the Iraqis declare they've got a Constitution, al-Qaeda's going to set off dozens of suicide bombs to piss in their cornflakes and give the news people bad things to report.

Army = Soldiers
Navy = Sailors
Marine = Marines
Air Force = Airmen

Thats how it is. Just because the media uses it to refer to all 4 doesn't mean that the media is not retarded

I am an advisor to the Iraqi Intervention Force.
We have a VERY small Bn Firm Base inside the city of Fallujah, and some Company bases, as well.
All very isolated.
Isolated from other Americans, that is. We have 10 Marines on a team.
We're not at all isolated from the Iraqis.
We eat, sleep and fight along side the Iraqi soldiers. Many missions a day.
It's a blast.

Link Posted: 8/21/2005 4:02:04 AM EDT
Regardless........always watch your back when working with the Iraqis. Trust no one 100% but the MARINES you serve with.
