Cruisin' the 'hood.
Checking the range.
I'm in country, waiting for the rest of 22 MEU to arrive.
I've only been on ship for 2 days. I went on our planning trips--leaving two weeks before everyone else--and am now in my deployment area.
This is good. The next time I'm on the boat, means I'm going home. Sweet. This deployment should prove a quick one. Heck, I'm 6 weeks down, 22 to go. Next week I'll be a quarter done. Easy money.
Where I Am
We're mobile, so location isn't exact
Slice has moved from Bagram to Khandahar, and is out of touch doing Marine stuff for a bit.
Getting there is half the fun!
This was Birdie's tent when he was here in Khandahar
