Dear Ma and Dad:
Life here is crazy. I'm riding around in
Blackhawks and avoiding ambushes and IED (improvised explosive devices).
Our camp continues to be shelled by mortars.
However, we are all safe. I have been
able to arrange helos instead of convoys because I think they are safer.
Not sure how long I can swing that however. Retaliations of the pig-latin
brothers I think are starting. I'm not sure about the long term here either
but we are trying to rebuild this damn country.
thanks for emailing,
