This is a small snap shot of one day during one of my deployments (Oct 11, 2005). It’s interesting to look back and I can remember it like yesterday. The smells, the feeling of the dirt, the long deployment continuing. I can remember everything about that day and I’m glad it’s in the past. Get yourself a cup of coffee and cigar and read over a snap shot of one day during a deployment. Just remember, your Monday could be worse. Time for a C-Gar
Today was a good day. However, one of our convoys was hit by and IED, there were no injuries. That was just one of many IED attacks beginning last night along with a single rocket impact (no factor). A couple detonations went off through the night but I just inched a little closer to the hesco and sandbags as they are the last line of defense for keeping red hot shrapnel giving me a new orifice. Near by, the engineers dropped a building that had been used by dirt bags to sharp shoot at Soldiers. Chalk up one abanded building collapsed and turned to useless rubble.
