Sky Rockets in Flight
As far as my job goes, I'm on an OCD team (Obstacle Clearing & Demolition). In a nutshell, I go out and poke at suspicious holes in the ground with a stick, looking for mines. Sounds dangerous, but since the insurgents are using AT mines (That's Anti-Tank), it's fairly safe. Those kind of mines usually require over 400 pounds of pressure. Don't want to waste all that HE on a little foot soldier. So I poke a stick in the ground until I feel a clunk, then another Marine comes over with some c4 and we blow it up. Memories in the making.
Finding a way to update this thing has been difficult. We've been attacked with rockets twice this week. Each time we get attacked, all phones and computers are secured. Don't worry too much, The insurgents, in keeping with arab tradition, aren't hitting shit. We also have about twice as many troops as we need now, since we're in the middle of a rotation. that means all the lines are twice as long as they usually are. Once they leave in a few days, I should be able to update more regularly.
I wish I could say what my next mission is going to be, but we all know & love opsec around here. Once it's complete, I'll be sure & letcha know what it was.
Anyhow, gotta roll to chow and hit the PX so i can buy myself some coffee. More updates soon, with luck.
