No kidding brother! I watched 3 different SF units come and go and each time I had to get use to the way they did ****. It just sucked watching them leave knowing I had a lot more time left.

Mosul, Iraq. 3rd Brigade, 2ID (First Stryker Brigade ever). 2003 to 2004. Lots of fun.

I would have much rather done a second tour of "the ghan". Than go to Iraq.

Agreed! Iraq sucked. At least Afghanistan was all mountains and different seasons, at least you had something nice to look at to take your mind off of all the bull**** that comes with the job. Iraq is nothing but desert unless your by the tigris or Euphrates river. But one thing I did like was the stars at night, clear as could be, you could actually see the Milky Way. Crazy

Me personally I didn't get many days like that in either place. I just enjoyed the hell outta search and destroy missions. And not having to deal with the ******* Iraqis. And I miss the hell outta my 240b.

Yeah dude I agree I don't really recall looking at the scenery. Just the ruble that was left behind. Loved the smell of cooked clp in the morning.

Well, I've been back in Iraq for about 9 months now. This time as a contractor though. I seem to find Jeep-like vehicles no matter where I go.
This is some sort of Russian deal-i-o that I stole from the General for the day. Don't worry.... he won't mind, they hate these things.

Feb-October 2004 with 1st LAR. Hung out North of the river in Al Bu Hardan, some in Al Qaim. Hit a little bit of Ramadi, and Fallujah I, from the south.

2nd tour was (i think) October 2005-July 2006. Same unit. Was in Camp Korean Village, also Operation Steel Curtain in Husaybah. Good times.
