Memorial Day

By K2 on May 31st, 2004 at 2:31 pm EST

Hello again gang. I hope everyone is enjoying their three-day weekend in celebration of Memorial Day. Myself, I’ve been stuck in Balad, Iraq for the past three days and just now made it to Udari, Kuwait a few hours ago. Gonna be here for the next couple of weeks training with a few other select soldiers from 25th ID as well as some from 1st ID on what the army calls a ‘UAV’. What the hell is a UAV ya might ask? I’ll go into a lot more detail on that later on. But for now…

Please take just a moment to pause and reflect why you’re celebrating this three-day weekend and what it stands for. The sacrifices made by countless American soldiers, past and present, living and deceased, are what makes the good ol’ US of A the best damn country in the world and it’s what sets us apart and above from everyone else. So… given that, enjoy yourselves, have a great holiday, and be thankful.

Gotta run folks. I’ll chime in again when I’m able, probably soon.
