Postcards from Tradocia

welcome to the desert of the real

A few little things have changed, but it’s still the good old trailer park. It’s a damn war zone! OK, not really.

I’m bored already.

    You better have your eye protection on!!

  2. Bryce and Lola

    We’re glad that you had a safe trip and are back with your unit. It was great having lunch with you Kristeen and Cindy. Have you seen any black or white camels? Love, G&G

    You should come here to FOB Justice I can see Iraqis walking the streets. The “gate” is a stones throw away and there is no bunk bed police, and eye protection, whatever I want to see them try to make our SF, Comando neighbors where eye protecting good F-ing luck.
