Very Busy

"We have been very very busy going out and conducting patrols through our area in Iraq. The kid still wave at us and give us thumps up. They even put on sunglasses that were handed to them previously by US Soldiers to look cool in front of us.

A few nights ago was my first time since being here a second time we were attacked. We stopped in a neighborhood asking people if they've been hearing and loud booms or saw anything. Next thing you know, about 15 minutes later while we were still there, a mortar lands about 100 meters from our position. A very lucky shot or a good one. It was way too close for comfort. It just exploded in the alley in next to us. I ducked immediately, my heart was pounding really hard. We finally took off, and my nervousness went away and became anger. I wanted to find out whoever did that. A few guys have already hit some IEDs and been shot at, but no one has been hurt."
