got here just a little while ago. this place does not look anything like Camp Virginia in Kuwait
Hey neighbor I'm over at Baharia. We may be going over there later on. OT Meat Iraq?
Who do you work with?
What branch are you in? What's your name? I'm from Oxnard too.
Ramadi is old and busted.
I was there in 05-06
Well I know they tore Camp Fallujah down which was right next door to Baharia.... I'm surprised we still have operations taking place in Baharia. What about the city? What's going on there?? I thought we were out of that shit hole....
They shut down Fallujah right before we got here and moved everyone to Ramadi/TQ/Baharia.
We're mainly just working on sending stuff home, demiling fobs, MITTs training IPs/IAs, handing stuff over to them, "interfaith" outreach programs.
All the stuff you'd expect in we're going home enviroment.
^ So did the Army take over Baharia or what? I was there 06-07 with the Marines and that was the rumor. Chow hall still up there? The only IAs that were allowed on there at the time were the SF and like a platoon of 20 IAs in training. How about the guy that sells the fake DVDs and cigars out of that quadcon? I forget his name.... he was Christian and said he lives in like northern Iraq or something. Do the Iraqi kids still come to ECP west? (right outside baharia). Did they take the Marines off the ECPs in the city? I have so many questions....lol
OT Meat Iraq sounds good. Bring the beer I got the girls.
Yut yut marine corps. Fellow 805? shit, small world.
what's your name?
pop sparkling grape juice and near beer
are u 2/23?
how is that? theres a grip at the chow hall but i havent tried it....i usually get me a couple of cans of Rip It
no, not 2/23 but I know someone from there. I just got back in, I'm "old school", so we probably don't know each other then.
near beer is the perfect breakfast partner, but the sparkling wine isnt much to write home about
i actually found some ripits stateside.. 16oz cans are like .75 a pop
yeah dude, i've seen rip its since i've been back, but haven't even been tempted to buy any. Saw them at the dollar store and some other places, i dunno where though.
i'll be going to 2/23 in a few months
Looks like it's a good unit.
4srsly? for what?
I'm here in Ramadi now too.
This is the closest I've ever been to another OTer.
I'll be sure to let my buddy know you're coming.
