Default I am unable to post on the website right now

I am unable to post on the website right now and a few things upset me about the letter. No ammo except for two vehicles, what idiots. Are they are trying to get people killed or do they just not care? I am pissed off. Where is the icon for mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hello Everyone! I know its been a few days since I called or emailed anyone

but the lines have been so long and I had to go to the port to pick up

trucks twice which is a 9am to 3am thing. Anyway I am doing ok, a little

tired of all the dust/sand but its not as bad as I thought it would be. The

rest of my company got here a few days ago which is ok I guess more females

came so now I have someone to go places with since sam and moto never

include me unless I go to there tent first. See we have to be with a buddy

at all times because they are scared we might get raped so thats another

reason I have not called or emailed no one else wanted to wait in line,

finally someone did but we waited 45 minutes to get on-line. It will be much

better when the system is up but that won't be atleast until the end of the

month. So my very first live convoy was the day of the elections and they

actually (they have not been doing this) gave all the soldiers 15 li! ve

rounds for force protection, anyway its a 2 hour bus ride to the port so

everyone took all there gear off and went to sleep, well we pick up a

Kuwaiti police escort at a check point and when we got there the 1SG that

was part of our crew came on the bus and told us to put our gear on close

the curtains b/c we were about to drive thru a town that there was a shoot

out taking place. Anyway I just had to see so I was peeking out the window

but all I saw was a heard of camels. So it was uneventful. But the convoy

back to NY takes 4 hours and I had to pee so bad and I was riding with a

male so I had to cut the top off a water bottle and tell him not to look b/c

you cannot stop. So that was the first one and the 2nd one was awful there

were too many people trying to take charge and it was total chaos so anyway

I was chaulk 2 and we didn't even leave the port until 2300, this time I

rode with Sam but we had NO ammo only the front and back trucks had ammo for

force protection but it! was an 80 truck convoy and sam and I were in the

middle so anyway they tell us to watch out for a black SUV b/c they are

harrassing the convoys and this e-5 was like what about the middle they

don't have ammo and all they said was it was out of there hands anyway

nothing happened but that was the last time I went to the port and I don't

think I will be going again. Most of the trucks if not all of them are here

at NY with us. Anyway I will try to call later depending on the length of

the lines. Not to worry though I am ok and fairly happy pretty stress free

so far. I am not scared if anything the 2 times we thought we might have

problems I think I was excited in a good way though, hopefully you all

understand what that means. Well I gotta go now, I love you all and miss you

all please kiss and hug all the kids for me!


I love you all!
