was gonna just tip the boonie hat to everbody and read about edman. gonna miss his witty (and not so witty) comments.
anyway, i found an internet cafe on the base we made it to after a couple of months in the mountains and valleys (steppes, my paruski speaking friends would call them) and thought i'd drop a line to let everybody know that we've lost a few good friends here, but for the most part, i'm in one piece.
a few new cuts, scratches and a couple of interesting scars but nothing to write home about...wait, i just did. never mind.
p.s. anybody going to see edman's family or attend, please send the sarge's condolences. i forget that we lose friends back home, too. when i get back, i'll fire up my own honda shadow and take a ride with edman's spriit at my side.
