On patrol

Here are a couple pictures from a patrol we went on the other night. I went with Soldiers from 1st platoon, Alpha Company. A good group of guys.

    I’ve been reading you blog since early summer. My brother, an O-3, was about about 4-6 weeks behind you in the combat skills class, and passed along the link to your blog. You’ve done a great job of painting the picture of what the training is like, as well as life in a forward area. The picture of the the 3 soldiers in silhouette is one of my all-time favorites, on any subject. Keep up the great work and thank you for serving.

    • Hi Patrick,
      Honestly, that was one goal of my blog — to help other people have a better grasp of what we in the military go through on a daily basis. Whether you are in the military or not, you have to appreciate what these Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are doing on a daily basis. I never realized the true sacrifice of deploying until I finally got here.
