I'm almost outta here.

Thus far, we've encountered 131 IEDs. More than doubled the amount by the company we replaced. A number of our soldiers have been injured -- of those, 7 were medevac'd. Kudos to our patrol leaders, medics and CLS's. I can't count how many times our M1114s, Buffalos, RG-31s, and Huskys were deadlined due to IED damage. Our mechanics and recovery team did an outstanding job fixing and evacuating vehicles for repair.

As for construction, we've emplaced well over a 1,000 concrete barriers completing around twenty Iraqi Army checkpoints, filled-in a number of IED craters, and cleared vegetation, palm groves, bombed-out buildings, and debris along 6 major military routes. Doing so sometimes under IED and direct-fire attack. We've completed well over 80 construction projects at four camps and one civil military compound, which involved interior road repair, clearing vegetation, moving T-barriers, fixing a canal, improving our firing range, moving mounds of gravel, debris removal, and filling a long wall of HESCOs.

Me.


Bad guys we captured and their weapons.

For the troops still in Iraq and Afghanistan such as Garand_Shooter and N8loi, stay safe out there.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Thank you for doing what you did while over here. Helping build projects and whatnot like that is very brave and noble.
