My new home, well temporarily...

[Removed for screening]

A couple of engagements ago, I was thinking about who all had been at each and had realized that there was a group of 4 people that had been at each engagement that my platoon had been in. One of our FOs (Forward Observer - Artillery guy), my Platoon leader, my squad leader and myself! The incident a few days ago narrowed that down since the FO guy was not around. Now after last night, its down to just me and my squad leader. The last 2 standing. Who will be the last one left? I predict what will happen is another squad will get into it and both me and him will be elimated together, but for now its cool being able to say I was there for it all.

Dear Soldier,

I am intrigued by your blogs and adventures. The reason for me writing you on your site is because I cannot find an email address on your page.
I recently launched a website www.TheBestStoriesEver.com and am looking for material to be posted. I have contacted many soldiers and am looking to collect numerous real-life stories from real experiences. I would love for you and I to somehow link together. If you could post your blogs on my site it would greatly be appreciated by not only I, but all of my viewers who read for inspiration and insight. In exchange, I would be honored to have an icon of yours placed on all of my pages along with my other advertisers etc.. in addition to giving you credit with each story obviously. I feel that by doing this, you and I will receive more hits and ultimately more viewers/informed citizens in regards to life and the real world.
Also, if you have other friends that are doing the same as you, and have stories that they would love to share, I would certainly enjoy reading them. I will continue to read your blog and hope to hear back from you soon.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me at thornbpd@jmu.edu

Sincerely,
Preston
