    We couldn't go out unless our PLT LDR got the daily intel brief from S-2 and then he would tell us what they told him. R.O.E. and all kinds of B.S. that happened in other sectors in Iraq...not just Baghdad, where we patrolled all the time, but in Mosul, Ramadi, etc. It got old real quick listening too all that stuff.

            only offenses I heard in my brigade about was a soldiers trying to steal from another soldier, one dissing on the Chaplain, and a white soldier using racial slurs about blacks.

            Now, in the base paper, it was different they had doods busted for drinking, drugs, refusing to go out the wire, there was a few of the assaults on females as well in the paper.

                I had a few shots of Jinro Soju once in Korea in 1987, nothing in Iraq or Afghanistan. I did see alcohol in the homes were had to search there, but never took anything from them, or the expat's on base who were bootlegging on base...in the middle east. Hell, some of the foreign soldiers on our base got to drink alcohol...they were not in the UCMJ in the 'Stan...

                      If anyone is gonna get this weapon it will be some active duty unit, like from the 101st, 2nd ID, 3rd ID, 82nd, or 10th MTN.

                            Read in the USA Today about one of the units that we trained and they lost a soldier in Iraq the other day...it sucks reading that, but I always look for anyone I know that deployed to the 2-way range so to speak. I have seen peeps I know who are KIA.

                              You might be interested in a book titled:

                              "The Things They Carried", by Tim O'Brien, Houghton Mifflin, Boston, MA, 1990

                              While is is about the Vietnam War, you may still find it an interesting read.

                                I read it...its a fiction book, but its pretty good book. I'm not too much of a military fiction reader...usually read true stories.
