I have returned

Hello everyone,

I been away for a few years. I might be making semi-regular stops here at DF. I reenlisted and am currently in Iraq. My tour of duty is almost over, but I might go to Afghanistan sometime next March. I got some photos posted in the miscellanious photo section, just showing off my knives. I have been building quite a collection.

I joined the Army National Guard.

We had some IED's go off around us, but they were what we call "soft hit" meaning they were small or distant and did no damage.

It has been interesting, I think most of the people here in Iraq are ready for peace and rebuilding. The Jihadis attack them more than they attack us. Most of the insurgents are coming in from other countries, especially Syria.

I am ready to leave this place, I look forward to Afghanistan, but I really need a break before I volunteer for another tour of duty.

This is me next to the "CHU's" back at At Taqaddum.









The top photo was taken from the gunner's seat on the "trail truck" in the convoy, we guard the back and that's an M240 7,62mm machinegun pointed in the 6 o'clock position.

Next photograph was taken as we were approaching an Iraqi Army checkpoint and the last was taken of some Iraqi army soldiers. I usually give them some bottled water as they don't always have enough.

Shit man, I pussied out of that idea. I was wasted when I came up with that plan. Luckily I sobered up before I joined, otherwise I probably would have gone AWOL.

It's usually about 120 F in the middle of the day. So drinking water is a must, especially when you got on alot of body armor. You sweat a lot and so you gotta replace that water or you dehydrate bad.

No alchohol allowed, though we got two beers on the USMC's birthday as we were on a Marine base at the time. I had a Guinness and a Coors.

I bought this Case XX Bowie knife online and it was shipped to me. It's a great knife, but I retired it when I got my hand forged damascus steel Bowie knife.

Some more photographs of my custom Bowie knife, a bargain at $500. That is had forged damascus steel blade with elk horn handle and bronze fittings. The blade is 10.5" long, 1.5" wide, and it's .25" thick at the spine. The Bowie clip brings the point to the centerline of the blade and the spine has scalloped filework like that found on Scottish dirks and sgian dubh.

It cuts like a razor, pierces like a dagger, and chops like a cleaver. I really like it!

Well sucks you pussed out, Parris Island is a one of a kind experience, I would have stayed but, I'm really not into being at the bottom of a giant pile of human beings wondering if and when I'll ever be able to breathe again. Oh God, they escorted me to an air force base, mcdill, here in florida, and FLEW me back to base. I'm on the plane thinking "goddamn I'm about to go to fucking prison, military prison at that!" eh, I got 100 hrs guard duty, and a fine that would make Michael Jackson scream "Oh hell no baby! You've got to be ki-i-i-ddi-i-i-ng me!" Oh yea and a dishonorable discharge to boot.
