Picture from Iraq

I finally got most of the nearly 1000 pictures I took in Iraq in 2005 loaded on shutterfly.
A little background.
I was at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq. Our camp is a detention facility for suspected unsurgents wither waiting to be released or sent to prison. They are not war prisoners and absolutely are not mistreated. Sometimes I think they had it better than us. Camp Bucca is one of the largest with over 7000 detainees. My first 9 months there I was doing internal security patrols or manning guard towers. Blah! I didn't go to sit inside walls. The lasst three were doing convoy escort duties around the south half of the country. This was the gravy. We got to see schools open, hospitals open. participate in the election process. It wasn't without a price. September 28, 2005 was out Black Wednesday when one of our gun trucks was hit by an IED. We lost a great friend, Sgt Steve Morin from our army unit, and A1C Liz Jacobson. The first female Security Forces officer killed in combat and Operation Iraqi Freedom. She was an outstanding soldier, even if she was Air Force. Their gunner was also injured pretty bad.
So, the first link is from Camp Bucca, just daily life in and around the camp. Second link is from the convoy team.

Guess I need to use spell check next time.

In english it is "suspected insurgents either waiting.."

Had a couple. When I was active duty I started out in 13B, then re-up'd to 92A. When I got out and went Guard I was still a 92A but I wanted to go to Iraq so I went to 11B school. I also recruited so I carry the skill identifier for that. I don't really pass myself off as anything but a soldier any more. I can adapt to any duty or environment I need to. No matter what mos I'm in I try to make sure my troops know their basic skills first. That's a reason I don't care for the Natl Guard anymore, both units I've been in could care or less about soldiering. All barbecues for these guys. Over half the unit I'm in now has never been deployed and the ones that have never went outside the wire. We're going to go to Afganistan next year and they will find out real quick what happens when you don't train.
Anyway...

What's yours?

Oh!, how's that Barrett shoot? I'd love to get a few rounds off one of these days. Shooting and map reading/land nav is where I excel.

The Barrett shoots like a dream. I pretty much dictate when my guys go to the range with the long range rifles, so we go all the time. Shooting is a perishable skill, so we drill on it frequently. I also have the M24 of course, and I love it too. Oh, by the way, I'm 11B. (With B4 as an additional skill identifier). I'm on a small team deploying to Afghanistan in December with a 2-month train up @ Riley prior. I might see you all over there......but you probably won't see me...
