IED Duty

Well everyone, you are not going to believe what happened to me today . I got picked for a working party outside the base. Well.. i kinda volunteered.. but that's a different story. I didn't want to!! just know that. It was just the best option.

So, I got up at 4 am this morning, after goingt to sleep at midnight so I cold spend time with Jason G. And then I got on a 7 ton and went outside the wire. We locked and loaded our weapons, and then drove about 2 hours out.. Now you aren't going to believe this part. The roads that people use for convoys are cluttered with trash, and the enemy uses that trash to desguise bombs to blow us up. So my job today.. was to clean up the trash on the side of the road.. and just hope that I don't find a bomb. That was the plan.. mind you we had security around us, and dump trucks to put all the trash in.. but it was just DUMB. One of us could have been KILLED! Luckily we didn't find any, the road we were cleaning isn't a road they put alot of them on. Well.. I'm back now and safe within the base again.. I was hoping to have an email.. but no luck. So.. i'm SUPER tired now.. and I need to get some sleep. Going to write an email to someone special.. but after that.. i'm going back home and going to bed.. my eyes hurt.

Nave: What do you really want out of life?
Jason: Just the words "Well done" when it's all over.
