ate a goat or two when we would embed with the local nationals. kind of interesting. they have strict religous tenants when it comes to slaying a "food" animal. they let us observe, but we were not allowed to kill or prepare the animal. 

so'kay with me. i get my meat at the butcher shop, walmart or the steakhouse.

blew a few things up, but mostly the "stuff that blows up" was directed as us again. maybe it's me? should i take this personal that people from the middle east, bosnia and other places keep shooting at me and destroying my vehicles?

take care neil.

I'm glad you're back. I went to a funeral a few Saturdays ago - Spc Jason Edens, age 22, home town Franklin TN, died April 26th of gunshot wounds sustained while serving his country in Afghanistan.

now i wish i had stayed a little longer. i left on the 12th to go to kandahar to prep for return to fort hood. i knew jason. he was with the 1st armor, out of bliss or hood. i'm not certain which.

we were in the laghman province. i was telling him about my coming home on leave and finding out that edman had died in a motorcycle accident.

we both ride and i wanted to let him know to be careful when he got home. this was his first tour and he was excited about being "spurred" with the cav/scouts.

please relay my condolences.

Consider it done Sarge. Google Jason Edens if you like - there are lots of videos posted of the procession,etc. There were thousands of citizens lining the 20 or so miles from the funeral home to the graveyard. God bless you and keep you safe SFC Bret Myrick.
