We are part of the "troop surge" ordered by President Bush. Here I thought that meant more troops in Iraq....like, more...aditional...troops. Well, there are some, but our unit is part of that "surge." Yes, hence the extention. So when asked by a fellow soldier what I'm doing, the proper response of course is, "SURGING!"
Not much going on here right now. I'm on gate guard for the time being until it's time for patrols again. I just feel obligated to write something because I haven't posted in weeks.
The rocket and mortar attacks have increased along with spring. We've had 4 attacks in the past two weeks. I don't even step out to look anymore. A year of attacks becomes the norm after a while. It is fun to watch the new guys running around though!
This picture is a pose of the norm for watching an attack.
