    Finally arrived in country.

    Took almost a week to get here. Stopped in Frankfurt Germany, then to Kuwait which is hot as balls I may add then to Al Asad Air base on the C4 Galaxy....then to TQ on the CH53's, then from there to Camp Blue Diamond in Ramadi.

    I'll have some pics to share once I get my shit settled down.

    I'm in Iraq, and we have internet running to our trailers. We paid some Iraqi fuckhead thousands of dollars to give us the satellite service and necessary equipment. It's slower than a motherfucker, but it works.

    It's not too bad. The days are long and the days are hot.

    I have net access because I'm with 2D Intel BN

    I think Kuwait is a hell of alot hotter than Iraq.

    So far it's not too bad. Blue Diamond is nice. We have outgoing every day, had some incoming this evening, nothing too crazy yet.
