Not Part III

Sometimes here in Iraq things go boom, or "boomba" as our Iraqi Jundees say.

Yes, I am overdue. Some of you even chose to use your potty-mouth words to tell me so. I could respond with a few choice Iraqi put-downs, which are very colorful, and more poetically constructed than in English. But, suffice to say I have been damn busy. Just getting done for the day now, and of course, by the time I get all my kit off and put away, vehicles ready to go, people "talked to" as 'D' calls it, and get settled down, the fucking morning call to prayer starts (yes, it is actually called the "fucking morning call to prayer", or it least it is on this side of the wall.)

All I am going to say right now is, the birds didn't fly because their computer said the weather was bad - it was a clear, star lit night........ ok going to go hit something, just realized I can't talk about this rationally right now.

SGT,

Morning call to prayer is great! It's the only time when a 107mm mortar is guaranteed NOT to land in your breakfast cereal.

Grumpy,
OpTempo just means the higher ups just figured out W.T.F. is going on...usually a week or two too late...
Remember the first Rule of CI-Roller for war: Get all your people home with all the parts they deployed with...

And I can write really good Sworn Statements...
