More photos from my friend stationed in Iraq, with captions below each.

Somewhere in Iraq; A recent, no-bulls@%t picture from one of our missions. Without giving the who, what, when, where, why, this is how I view the world on the majority of our stalks. Believe me, after 5-6 hours of burning your eyes out, this starts to suck. At that point, combined with fatigue, we see some funky stuff. I once talked to a mound of dirt thinking it was my team leader. Another time, all of us at one point or another, thought a distant tree was an enemy soldier walking down the road. When a tree start your heart pounding, you know it's time to call it a night (I only wish we could)....

Samsung 096 (cause I forgot to label it): And this is how I look when I get back from said missions. Yeah, we get a little crazy, then we hit the hay. It's crash and burn until the next time out.

I'll try to send some daytime mission pics next email. Don't expect anything dramatic, I purposely send the pictures that can't be placed to location or personnel, as we still frequent certain spots. So don't be disappointed if I crop or blur certain parts out. However, I can give you a general feel of what the area looks like.


ps Thanks to all those who have been sending me mail and packages. You're our lifeline to home so please keep it up. If I have doubles of things, don't worry. There are always guys here with whom to share.

Stay safe and keep in touch. ;)

How can you see with that toxic shock avenger green? The letters and pictures are very humbling. Hang in there!
