June 9, 2004

As you can see, I haven’t written in a while. I guess that means there’s not a whole lot to talk about, but I’m sure I’ll write a lot now.

We left from that last pause, Uday‘s house, after about two weeks of being there. I guess Echo Company didn’t need us as bad as Fox Company, which is who we’re with now. Since we’ve been back at Mech, we’ve been rehearsing with them to do another “proof of concept” convoy through the city again, which will take place today.

Finally, it’s 0815. We’ll roll out at 0900 and stage at the cloverleaf until 1500. Gulf Company will go to the mayor’s office, and if they take fire, we’ll roll in to save them. We’re operating during the late day and there’s not a whole lot of anxiety. If it were night or early morning…the darkness adds to the anxiety. It might not even happen still.

When we got back to Mech, we relaxed a little, only working half days. Mike and I are going to the gym religiously now. The PX was selling some NO2, so we nabbed a bunch of that. COC also finally gave us rooms. Of course, they are shoving four of us into a ten by ten foot room! I’ve been writing Liz, trying to express my feelings for her without over doing it. Yeah, that didn’t go like I planned, but I don’t plan on giving up either. She has a new boyfriend—she always does.
