well.. it's been a while since my last entry. I'd like everyone to know that all the soldiers here at Charlie (or recently removed) are in good health. Camp Bucca was an interesting visit. Most of the platoon came down with the Bucca bug (not me, yay!). During the trip we searched over half of all the detainees in theater. The AirForce guys didn't like the way we worked though. We actually 'searched' and found a ton of weapons, contraband, and downright evil stuff. Earlier this year one of the camps exploded an ATV and burnt down over a dozen tents. Yet the AirForce still allows them to have lighters? Anyways, I met a cool girl there, Amy Rose. She totally reminds me of Bjork (yeah, she's really that wierd). There was also a 24/7 coffee shop.. omg, we went there three times a day.

Something happened on the way back from Bucca that changed the direction of my life. I am going to go to school (never thought i'd say that with so much definition). I'm going to become an officer in the MP regt. What happened on the way back from Bucca made me furious and every thread of my soul cried out. I fell asleep that night convinced i was being led by "cowards and traitors". I am making it my duty to fill the leadership gap on the combat side of the MP regt. I have outgrown being the obiedient soldier and I don't think leading soldiers as an NCO will be enough.

Anyways, i'll be on here later.. we have to do some layout stuff..

so what are you gonna study? i'll be done with my associated degree in the summer of '06. So maybe by the time you get back we can both be going to UK or something. that would be really cooooool. Anyway, hopefully you have some time to relax a little now that you're back at charlie.

Bugs are pure hellish experiences. Good you're still healthy.

Stay safe and take care.

too bad you can't get an associated degree, so dan won't ever be done with college. i graduate with my AssoicateS degree next monday, then i'll be at U of L either in the fall or the spring...we can commute together...or get a place together (woo hoo!!) or you can go to UK with Dan (if he ever gets there)
i'm glad to see that you're ok and that you didn't get sick with the bug of death. i hope everything is going well for you, we miss you and can't wait for you to get back so we can harass you in person.

whatever sarah, i'll be done with my associates next summer. so you can take your "Dan'll never be done" crap and hide it back in the closet. So, by the time that sean gets back, and is ready to go to school, i'll be ready to go to UK. Eat that.

U of L, SchmU of L, are you meschuge?

"U of L, SchmU of L, are you meschuge?"

I'm definitely going along with Dan on this one, even if it so happens that I have no idea what what he means by meschuge.

UK rocks
I have nothing against U of L except that it's not UK.

Sean, I know you had a lot of conviction in your tone when we talked about that whole incident. I'm feeling a little useless these days myself. Here at Echo it's more higher level stuff...I want to role mounted on the front lines and get immersed in Iraq.

Sarah, why don't you come to UK? :(

Re: UK rocks
because she's a big loser-head. and she can't handle the UK-ness.

hehe, like brent told me the other day, "join the SOLID ranks of the Blue"

Blue is better anyway, because they have Church and Caboose... Red goes have Sarge though.. Blue is still better. (random Red vs Blue comment)
