As I type this, it is 5 degrees (Fahrenheit- I'm old, so sue me) in Moscow, Russia. On the other side of the wall I'm next to, it is -15. Fueled by a steady diet of beer and cheese, the Midwesterner is perfectly adapted to winter combat conditions. Thus, in preparing for deployment to Afghanistan (Kabul temperature, 34 degrees; positively balmy) I will continue working on the diet that has made me the optimal combat machine I am today- Sam Adams and string cheese. Of which I've already had several. Cheers!

Yea but it's a dry heat......... sounds like you are on the correct diet for the area but don't think there will be much Sam Adams over there.

Remember your grunt lessons and keep your buttons in the dirt it wouldn't do for you to get shit in the ASS... whoops can I say ass on here.

Anyway stay out of the way of bullets some of us need something to read over the weekends.

Make that three comments.

Carry on, brother. Keep us posted on your deployment, we have you in our prayers.

Both are bad...........but one can be solved quicker and less painfully.


There's a long lead time on this one, so most of the deployment posts will be about the joy of prepping for it for some time. Given that I just went through that at the beginning of 2008, I've got a feeling I'll be really, really bored/pissed/frustrated until we actually go.
