Anyone else Going to baghdad in Aug time??
you know where in baghdad you'll be yet?
Camp Liberty to start then off to the FOB's
We got some software in Liberty, I may be in the area near fall...
i was at Wheeler-Sack 3 weeks ago
I just got word no more than an hour ago that I'm going as an augment to the sandbox, they havent told us exactly where. I should be leaving to the State for some Training around the first of July. They might let me take leave to see my fams before that, I hope they do.
Eitherway, I'll be over there by August.
I'm fucking happy as a motherfucker, finally getting to go suffer.
congrats. bout damn time.
My unit's TOA should be around the time you guys arrive here.
Camp Liberty is like garrison, only with 110 degree heat. if you're there long, you'll be livin life good. trust me. i have to jump on a convoy to drive there just to buy shit at a PX.
FOB Hope = No PX
You guys Go there and Practice taking off and flying around??
When I got the news my eyes got all watery n shit ...
Nah, we can do that at travis
We picked up some cobras for a fire dept out here
December timeframe as of right now.
I just got a call from my #2 son (Air Force). He arrived in Tallil, Iraq this morning. He said, "Dad, it is hot as hell here!" They were on the runway at Bahrain for a couple of hours yesterday and he said he now knows exactly what it feels like to be a Thanksgiving Day turkey.
Haven't heard from my #1 son for a while (Army). Every time they have a casualty in his unit they go under a communications blackout until after the next of kin are notified. They go dark way to often for me.
Looks like Ill be off to Kuwait here in september
along with my two week stint in Osan in June
That fucken sucks
Better hope you go to camps like Arifjan or Doha. I spent a month at Camp Virginia before heading into Iraq, a complete shithole. All sand, everywhere. No trailers, just tents. Plus it's a little warmer in Kuwait than in Iraq.
