I'm not exactly sure. It has been quite awhile since I last posted. A great deal has happened since. Some of it, I can talk about. Some of it, I cannot. As most of you have probably seen from the major media, things have picked up here quite a bit. We have had a rash of IED's in our area. Some we have caught before they were detonated, some we have not. This brings me to the bad news. The MP Platoon that is attached to my Battalion has been hit again. The news is not good. May PFC Samantha Huff rest in peace. I did not know her, but her comrades speak very well of her. She was only 19 years old. Her HMMWV hit an IED one night about a week ago. I shall spare further details as I know them. The important thing is that she served honorably, and by all accounts was a good soldier and woman. It is frustrating trying to fight an enemy that hides among innocents strikes with no rhyme or reason other than to bloody us and shake our will. But then again, that is why they call them terrorists.
