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,



This is a Blackhawk.
