That is all of the pictures that I am going to share.
Thank you for taking the time to look through them and comment on them. They definately brought back alot of memories. I hope that they will help some of you to better understand that we are not there to take over. I hope that some of you will understand that this is about more then just oil.
If you feel differently that is fine but please support our troops at the end of the day.
There were alot of friendly people. I had my preconceived notions as I left the U.S. and headed over there. I would venture to say that almost every single close minded thought I had was shattered. Thankfully.
I was with Task Force Tarawa. My unit was 8th Communications Battalion. Our unit is mainly known for The battle of An Nasiriyah and the rescue of U.S. Army Private Jessica Lynch.

I enlisted as a Network Administrator. Since I rode/raced Crotch Rockets and ATV's in my off time I was allowed to go through the combat courier school early on. While in Iraq I pulled duty as that as well as a Network Admin and a few other billets. I did everything from running radio wire to clearing buildings. Marines dont really have just one job. Thats what makes us so effective.
you are correct in making that statement. Opsec is very important.
