Thaniks for sharing and Thank you very much for your service!
So tonight I have some more picture to post. These are from my first convoy, back before the 1 was cleared it was an 8 hour convoy at least to get from nolay to inkerman. Later in the year when they cleared the 1 it took about 45 minutes. Luckily it was a boring ride up there with no one getting blown up. And a few close calls once we were there.
Just us on the 'dillo. Trying to keep the dust out of our mouths.
Here are a few pics of going through open desert
Before I could go and do my job, there was some down time. So this is us just hanging out.
That night I went out on an op to a different PB. It was a long and stressful night that I don't want to get into. But here are some pictures of when I got back. These are pallets that we are sleeping on. And yes, there are two sleeping bags on there next to each other. It's ok to do that when you are deployed in the winter.
Now take special notice of what is above my head. It is a crate of unexploded ordinance. Long story short, when we pulled in they staged the convoy right there. We were told to sleep by the vehicles. So we did. In the UXO pit.... We were VERY LUCKY that nothing happened.
This is me in the morning.
And this is me being VERY LUCKY. lol... stupid Marines.
From here we got back in the truck, headed back to nolay. Home sweet home.
My cousin's in country right now, and though I dislike having anything but a Christian's mindset about most things, I wholeheartedly agree with you.Yeah, I am in the mind set of ******* that place and everyone there. Thus the lack of updates and pictures. I hate Afghanistan.
