Seriously Brice, and altho a couple days late, please allow me to wish you a very HAPPY if somewhat Belated BIRTHDAY...!

... and a blessed event for you as well. Congrats to you and others involved in the elimination of one of the bad guys in Helmand province, my daughter's old stompin' grounds. Thanks tons for the kind words, and since I out-age you, the order of the day is STAY SAFE!

Scouts Out!!!

Scout:

...may have got another one today but too early to tell. Whatever the case, we got their attention!

Also had another suicide bomber attack today (about eight hours ago...1330 local) btwn here and Kandahar City...more bad guys than ever have stayed around the area this year than anyone can remember. Most HAVE gone to the mountains, but several hundred have remained in the Southern AO.

Wishing ALCON a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lobo,

I told you not to take your golf clubs there....you'd be much to busy. Now maybe you'll listen!

Happy New Year!

Default YO PACK-MAN...

...the retired Army CSM who is our G1 Mentor (Advisor) is an avid golfer...SIX (6) handicap...has a pitching wedge and a little utility wood (metal)...a 5 wood of sorts...and...a hunk of carpet. We hit some plastic balls off it a couple times a week.

Interestingly, our little PX here often has some department store grade clubs...folks buy'm (like Ernie did with the little utility wood)...don't mind if they ding'm up over here...only cost like $20/$30. Here on KAF, if it ain't dusty sand (which is now mud), it's gravelled in, so there's really not much to hit from IF you don't have a carpet.

Gotta make do with whatchya got...and...Warriors have been doing that for centuries!

Just takin' some incoming...s'long for awhile....!

Default WELL THAT WAS...

RUDE AS HELL...!

Couple 122s...not very close...over behind the gravel pit somewhere...hopefully not in any of the Log Support areas.

Altho not close, they're always "attention gainers" as most of you know...never know WHEN they're comin' or WHERE they're gonna land!

Later on good folks....

Hey Marinevet! Order of the Day: keep a lower profile than you think necessary. Thanks for the SITREP's and know that you are surrournded by our prayers from here.

...low a profile as my beat up ol' bod will allow...thanks Brice!

As for SITREPs...wish I could share more but you know the deal. In that regard, and I know I'm jinxing the issue, but it's been real quiet the last few days around here. All y'all know what I mean...just a little TOO quiet so I'm wonderin' what's up? It is their Eid Holiday, so that does have some effect, but it's kinda eerie...!

I was thinkin' this morning, while out on Camp Shir Zai, walking to the Head (Latrine) trailer...wrapped in my Gortex parka...right at 30 degrees out...thinkin'...here I am...cold as hell...and makin' the same walk that three months ago woulda found the morning temp at about 100...and by 1300...about 130+ in the shade...not a lotta places in the world that have that sort of annual temp ranges...100+ degrees! May get down into the hi 20s tonite. Lot worse up in the mountains, tho, and even up the road in Kabul, it's usually 15 degrees or so cooler/colder. Just a little trivia some might find interesting.

Semper Fi to all from the Cooooold Sands of Kandahar,
