I have made my last mission into Iraq, at least for a while anyway. I went to Tallil as usually yesterday and came in this morning to find my name on a list of people to go to Heavy Lift 6 Sunday morning. The military has asked PWC to provide American’s to escort the TCN’s around Kuwait on local missions. Since I am one of the few driver’s that have the right DOD card, I told them I would do this if needed. This is what Kenny and I agreed to when I came back over this time. For me to stay out of Iraq. At first, I couldn’t do this. Going into Iraq was part of the mail mission, not to mention I miss the action of running up north. With this offer, I am hoping that this will keep me busy enough that I wont be so board most of the time and I can be true to the agreement that Kenny and I made. I am not sure how this is going to go, but I am going to give it a try. I know that it will make my family happy, I wont be in such a dangerous area as well.
I will be making a trip to Bahrain this weekend as well. My visa runs out on the 8th and with that I need to fly out of Kuwait and then back in. PWC is taking their sweet time in getting us the Visa 18 that we all need to stay working here. Even though they have said that they will pick up any fines that accrue if the visa we have now runs out before they get us the Visa 18, I just don’t like it. Besides, I have never been to Bahrain. Bert, my brother, ahs told me that if Iever got the chance to go there, I should. I wont have but about 24 hours there, and it will be on my own dime, but I plan on making the most of it. Like I have said many times before, I am a tourist in all that I do here. I will give ya’ll a report of my trip and maybe a few pictures when I get back.
