    so I made it back safely with no problems.
    It was quite the experience, and call me crazy if you like; I would not mind going back.

    Until then, I am really glad to be back home. I missed everyone so much~ a greater appreciation towards life and all the simple things I took for granted ^^

    Gomez is back!!!!!

    The sad/good part of it all, I never fired it. It got cleaned frequently though; they would of been sorry if they wanted to try anything.
    All in all, I would say it was an ideal situation you know?

    Thank you- it's good to be home ^_^

    Gracias! I was glad to step back here in the US & A

    I got footage of a dust tornado- that's about it. I heard things blown up- EOD gets to have all the fun (well, part of the time)

    Ahah. I saw that picture and it put a huge smile on my face. Thank you as always!

    :werd: killing someone even if it is in a war situation isn't something to take lightly.

    Glad you made it home safe. And just a friendly word of advice, while over there don't put anything on the issued laptops that you don't want anyone to see. I know it gets boring/ lonely over there, but there are a lot of *nice* pics making it back state side.

    if you go back and meet a SPC trevor wilson, combat medic, punch him in the gut for me. i couldnt find it in me to hit him when he was down after i knocked him on his ass with one punch to the face.

    Yup, I have a marine cousin who was in one of the batallions that cleared Baghdad and that other city they holed up in. Fighting close quarters in apartment complexes, etc. He doesn't talk about it at all, but he left a quiet christian mommas boy and came back a heavy alcoholic. He drinks constantly now. Was suicidal for a short time there.
