So after being here for a month- I have a few things to say. Afganistan is cold as ****.

Hasnt really been above 20 in the last few weeks and maybe because we are at altitude it really seems colder here.

Food is edible but barely- Everything is covered in a film of dust that is irritating to say the least. We are allowed to pay $35 a month for an internet hookup in our hooch- 64k. Slow and inconsistant, we have the pleasure of having our internet censored. Isnt that lovely, no porn for you silly GI! So if anyone wants to hook a brotha up.....

Oh well- unlike the Army I only have another 3.5 months to go, guess I shouldnt complain too much. Just missing the wife, kids, dogs and beer.

Got some pics in my gallery- will try to add a few more

The only feeling that is better than home: coming home after a long time away. Like in good homebrew, patience is rewarded.

210th, eh? We used to work quite a bit with you guys when I was stationed in AK (now defunct 355 FS).

If I have my bearings right, I was there when the patch of concrete you're standing on in the pic was marked as a mine field. It was warmer, though, in March-August.

Stay safe, stay warm, and give 'em hell!

Small world eh- the 210th is now one of the very few Guardian Angel Weapons systems currently in exisitence. These guys are pretty cool- With that being said most of them have seen some good combat. This group is awesome, former Marines SF, Army SF/SERE and tons of awesome pilots.
