Well yesterday was one hell of a day. We started out the day before when we headed out to go pull overwatch over that shitty area Im always talking about. Pretty uneventful because my squad stayed back to guard the trucks, while the dismounts set in. Not that Im complaining tho because overwatch usually involves a tall building and a lot of stairs, and with all the equipment that we have on us, we have to weight in the neighborhood of 50-60 extra lbs. But yeah, I ended up just sleeping in the truck all night, which sucked because I could not get comfortable for the life of me and mesquitoes were chowing down on me like I was some full course meal!!
