PROTECTING FREEDOM.....HALF AN INCH AT A TIME.

Conex Day

Today, we packed our conex. To the un-initiated, a conex is a metal shipping container that can be loaded on a flatbed truck or a ship.

To a soldier, loading the means one thing: We are close to the day when we stuff whatever we have left into a duffle bag and a rucksack, I pack my laptop into its gargantuan black waterproof case, and put on my assault vest...which will be MUCH lighter, due to not having a ridiculous amount of ammo, and load the freedom bird. Sometime after the elections in October, we will transfer our AO (Area of Operations) to the 101st ABN, and we will di-di-mau back to the US. We'll to Kuwait for a while, then on to my native Washington, at FT. Lewis for an uncertain amount of time, and then return to Idaho. I can't wait to get back to my wife and my life.

So, just another check-mark in the book that gets us home.


SCOUTS OUT!!!

MDG....OUT.

MDG,

Here's to hoping the days speed by until you're once again in the arms of the lovely Mrs. MDG.

God Bless and stay safe,
Remy

Several units have been "extended" for several weeks. Glad to see your not one of them...

Or am I speaking too soon?
