    This is the first time i've gotten access to the internet in 4 months, I don't know where to begin. I have spent the past 4 months in brutal conditions that I never even imagined, there's a lot of Marines over here but very few are out doing what we're doing. My roommate and best friend was killed in an enemy trench, my other friend was shot in the head 3 feet away from me, my other friend was hit by an RPG and is paralyzed for the rest of his life, and just last week my former squad leader lost his leg. I hate my fucking life, I can't sleep at night even though things are pretty low-stress now, and the only reason i'm alive and posting this is because of the new MRAP's, our's has over 65 bullet holes and has been hit by 4 RPG's. We've slept in captured Taliban compounds for the past 4 months and I haven't showered in just as long. Right now we're in the process of turning everything over to the British so we can get the fuck out of this god damn country in about 2 months, we'd already be out of here if we didn't get fucking extended.

    I just found this about Coop, you can read about him here: http://livinglegendteam.blogspot.com/2008/05/marine-cpl-william-j-cooper.html


    My time limit is almost up so I don't have much more to say other than there are a lot less Taliban walking god's green earth right now.

    Sorry to hear about the fellow Marines John, but glad to hear you are still kicking ass.

    Keep your chin up and get home safe.

    Keep up the good work.
