Boots On Ground


December 30, 2005, 07:08 AM
Hi Y'all,

After what can only be described as a long strange trip, I've finally made it back to Bragg, boots on the ground stateside as it were. Funny, the coldest I've been all year was in Kuwait while we were waiting for our flight. getting us prepared forwinter back here, I reckon. At any rate, here's to a happy New Year to all on the High Road.

Congrats on making it back from a grunt who's still here. In ~3 months I'll be posting my own "Yay, I'm back" thread. :)

My son and daughter-in-law are still there....hope to see them soon!

Sleep, eat and know all of us have a deep appreciation for what you are doing.

I'd like to see more sons and daughters of the rich over there fighting...and more of the poor and middle class here at home.

Take Care And Thank You!

Like, what's the single funniest moment of your deployment?

The incident that sticks out in my mind right now happened in early DEC. We had settled down for the night when we started to hear small arms fire outside the wall, which isn't unusual for Baghdad. But it kept getting louder and louder, til I stuck my head outside to take a look. The entire wall was silhouetted in the huge mass of tracer fire going up. So I wake everybody around me up, we're getting into battle rattle and heading for the shelters and vehicles. It was like we were getting hit by the 5th AIF horde. Then a runner shows up to tell us to stand down, stay in the shelters til the firing dies down. It turns out that all the fuss was over the Iraqi national soccer team beating Saudi Arabia in some soccer tournament. Easily excitiable, these Iraqis. In the aftermath of it, my RTO said that we're going about this war the wrong way - the next time we make contact, instead of frags we should just throw soccer balls.
