Wup, Bro Don't let the mental migits get you down! I too was in the Iraq, 105th MP Co. Buffalo NY, from Balad,Fire Base Kalsu and CSC Scania. Been back for a year now, Glad your home and give a Thunderious HoooooRrrAAAAAAAAAA, to your boys of the 82nd! Had the fine pleasure of working with y'all.
I went to Basic at Ft. Benning, Alfa Co. 3/47th good old sand hill! If you know or see D.I. Big Butler or little Butler maybe D.I. Wilkerson or Gibbs Tell them Thanks for me. There training got me home! Thouse f@#$%ers that are cheering the death of a hero know not, nor will ever know the meaning of Honor,integrity,Dutiy and respect.
The consept of personal curage or selfless service is forgine to them. Thouse soulless
sheep, know only what it is to sit at a screen and dream of being a HERO like you! Some one who dose what they think is right with action, rather than write hurt full stabs on a computer. They will never know the joy of acomplishment, or the hurt of loss that you know. They can only proclaim there own version of Ideals on a faceless media.
Off the suject but I had to say it!
All my Love Bro!
P.S. Teach them well, it saved my ass!
