Your warriors continuing to punish the enemy on ground where the enemy once thought they owned. We continue to discover sometimes dozens IEDs a day compounded with the typical afternoon small arm fire engagement. We have continued to be successful because of the turn of events from local nationals aiding us and frequently telling us where IEDs are placed.
Your Marines continue to kick butt. I’m enjoying a nice La Gloria, Series “R”number 7 stoag as I write this and the enemy is trying to figure what has hit them. Not only are the in a but they can’t regain the momentum from our latest efforts against them.
Things are good, and getting better in the local area. Since we have pushed the bad guys out and kept the area under Coalition Influence, the enemy threat & intimidation campaign has come to a standstill. Imagine your everyday actions followed up with a threat that if you do decide to go to lunch for an hour today, even though you deserve it , we will kill your family member…..hmmm, last time I checked, that sucks. How about if you don’t work overtime for free and also come in on the weekends (need my stapler) the bad guys will take everything you own and….yip you guessed it kill your family members….nope not too fond of that either. That’s the type of life style your Marines have ended because of their bravery and constant pressure on the enemy.
