From Afghanistan today

Just got an e-mail from my buddy on deployment.
If I have to explain the asterix stuff, then you wouldn't understand anyway.

"Hey there. Well I have been here a little over a month and all is well. I am not doing much of anything. It kinda sucks for us due to others agendas and such. The weather is turning cooler now, which is a relief. They say that ********* doesn't get too cold in the winter. That, I will have to see for myself. I have pretty good amenities for A-stan. On our little compound has a good chow hall, private rooms, AC, big gym, 25 meter range,hot water for showers and a laundry site. The main base (*********) has a small PX, where we can get some goodies. I am keeping busy doing other aspects of my job, that don't include shooting. I will try and send some range pics. The internet is slow and it takes forever to upload pics. ***** is doing fine. We talk regularly. I thought I would drop you a line and say "Howdy!" Tell everyone I said Hello and I will talk to you guys soon."

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Pard..

Please pass on to him our appreciation.. Did you check the news today. Theres a lot of flax about Obarry making it clear that he will let politics guide the war, as opposed to winning..

For what it's worth i have some questions about the "big picture" over there as well.. But if he feels that way then don't let another troop die if your not in there to win..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
