Things here are the usual we get mortared everyday and we are always dressed in “Full Battle Rattle” (Helmet, Flak Vest with Armor Plates, 12 Thirty Round Clips of Ammunition, 4-6 Grenades, and one Money Belt (Uncle Ben Knows what this is)). With all your equipment on in full battle dress uniform, you weight around 60-80 lbs heavier.Wheww I started sweating thinking about it. All in all I am blessed by the good lord that I still have my health which I fully trust in god.
Well Uncle Ben is so, so, so right about the feeling that comes over you as a Marine or Soldier when you receive anything from the states especially when it’s from someone not of kin to you that appreciates what you are doing for our country
