I will post this here. My buddy Stieny posted awhile back about me leaving for Afghanistan. Well here I sit been here at FOB Gardez for about two weeks. I spent about 3 days in BAF, then finally made it here. It is a small FOB with the basics showers and porcalain toile:thumbs_up. We live in 8 man huts not bad living at least we are not on cots... Our Sqaudron to it 1st KIA this past Sunday along with 2 WIA it was of course a bad day... This place is like the wild west it is very remote all our supplies come in either on Jingle truck or Air ie helicopters no landing strips for a C-130 well thier is a landing strip in Gardez city but they have to send a QRF down thier to secure it LOL... Anyhow half to go...

Best of luck and God bless you.
I was there in 02 and going back soon.
We used to refer the Jingle truck as a "Clingon War Vessel". Only those that have been over there know why we called it that.
Keep your head down and come home safely, my prayers and thoughts are with you and your families.
