Just wanted to let ya’ll know that I will be leaving out on a convoy in the am. Don’t know where it is going yet, but I could be out from 3 to 14 days. I don’t think I will be able to email during that time. I have taken lots of pictures in the last 2 days but haven’t gotten them transferred yet. I have to get with one of the IT guys to do that. So it will probably be when I come back from the mission. Course then I will have even more pictures to send out. Some of what I have are of my trip to town last night and of today’s events. They are way cool. I have worked 12 hours a day for the last 2 days, but have done lots of site seeing as well. Saw Kuwait City and the fish market today. That was real cool. I have lots of pictures of that and of me on one of the fishing boats. I am working hard, but having a blast. Now, let’s see how my first mission goes. Depending on where they send me, I may or may not, see some of the action. Have to be careful of what I take pictures of on convoy, but if there is action, I will try to get pictures. I am very excited about my first mission. We are hauling ice to the troops. That is all the reefers haul now. The TCN’s are running the food. It is safer for us that way.
You have a happy birthday if I don’t get back in time to send you an email on that day. I have you something but won’t be able to get it in the mail till I get back.
Kenny, Ian, & Steffan,
I have ya’ll some shirts and a deck each of “Iraq’s most wanted” playing cards. As from what I have been told, you guys need to hold on to them when you get them.
Alright guys and gals, I need to get my tail to bed. It is 2145 and I have to catch the bus @ 0400 to go on this convoy. Everyone take care and I will email ya’ll when I get back.
