i enjoyed my service.

Jeff Hull, he just took a little piece to the leg.. we all laughed about it.. 2-8 infantry took that thing over (that was me) we went in with about 600 troops.. and left with all but 1. not bad for going from kuwait to the muq.. whole invasion + taking over camp normandy kicking out the iranians + taming the area + keeping peace for the year. I couldnt of asked for a better bunch of soldiers go over there with.

you ever hear any stories about "Private Jones" the chick?

Hey Kid!
You finally got over there and I finally got my home!!
That place kinda sucked after 25 months so I de-mobed.
I was gonna stay for another year.
All I can say is hit the ground when its coming in and make friends with the DFAC rations man. That will be your Gatorade hook-up when it gets really hot.

Our camp the Pvt. Jones was actually a specialist. Hehehe
