    Just stopped in to say hey! I haven't been able to surf the net for awhile but now I should be able to get on a little more often. As the fighting in fallujah has increased we've had numerous WIA's(most of which are now back in the states) and only one KIA in my platoon. I've had a few close calls with IEDs during patrols, but nothing major.
    I can't wait to get back to states and dump some money into the K5! :laugh:

    Glad to year you are doing well, and a hearty thank you for what you are doing. In some ways I wish I were there with you, still trying to convince my brain I am not 20 anymore!

    I haven't heard from him since middle of September. I am going to email his Mom to see how he is doing, and send a package off to him. I will report back anything I find out.
