News from Baghdad

A small spot to describe to a certain extent what it is like for the soldiers here in Iraq. I must remain anonymous as there may be some who would view this as an "official" posting, however, it is not. Just some personal views on the politics and public views in this war that has been to oftentimes tainted by the sensationalism of the media.

I enjoy my job to the fullest, regardless of the political climate at any particular time. My family and my soldiers are the central focal point of my existence as well as my religious viewpoints.

4 October 2004

Well, thus ends another 24 hour period with absolutely nothing of consequence to report. Tomorrow will begin another sort of boring day as we have force protection details to do all day. I still cannot understand that why, with a camp full of Military Police who do absolutely nothing, do we soldiers who patrol every single day, or NEED to patrol every single day rather, have to conduct these tower guards and other details regarding camp security. Military Police. Is that not what their primary duties are? Guards? Oh, I forgot, they may not want them to do that for fear of another "Abu Ghraib" incident. Only kidding. For the most part though, in all seriousness, they get on every one of our nerves, for they do absolutely nothing but draw a paycheck and give us a hard time. Reservists at that too.
