god is not here today priest
looks like theyre killing the shit out of all the cops we are training over there?
Oh, Oh, Oh, OhOOoah, the right stuff...
Diyala province was where we were located. we actually managed to get it under control...then when we came home, 101st came over, and closed the bases down.
re-enter terrorism in diyala province.
What major unit do you belong to and if they closed it down, did they just have a different base set up or use your old ones ?? Were they meant to replace your unit ??
IEDs in Baghdad have dropped to only a handful a week since my unit showed up in October. Surge ftw
we were working under 1st ID, and then 42nd ID at the time....we were mainly training the iraqis and capturing terrorists in the area...they built an iraqi army base on the backside of ours, and when we left, the 101st decided to let the IA do it on their own....
edit: we only lost 11 soldiers at all our bases when we were over....and when the 101st came in, they lost 8 in the first 1-2 months.....and that's not to say we didnt do as much as them...but we we very civil with the civilians there, and the 101st just treated them like crap most of the time......
Someone needs to take a class on making a presentation.
We should send Accord and he'll single-handedly defeat the mujheads
OR we could send you to scare them away.
I was at Gabe from feb'07 to July, and since then been here at warhorse.(Diyala province, Baqubah) It was BAD until July when we did ops Arrowhead Ripper and paraclese. Been relatively quiet since, still shit goes on but not like it did. Used to be a stryker would come in as a catastrophic kill every day or two, just cracked the fuck open like a walnut. I'll be happy to not see that kinda shit again. just a couple more weeks and im out of here. i cant wait. i have done my time, be back for round two in less than two years though most likely.... maybe i get to go to Bosnia instead? lol, wishful thinking!
