    They been keepin him awful busy, lots a convoy missons.

    He just got back ta there base, got snowed in a pass an spent 4 days in his truck, didn't really enjoy it. He said it was droppin 13" a hour on em an they just couldn't risk movin on the switch backs.

    On there way back a Afgan driver fell asleep an drove through to houses before goin over a 3000' cliff! Wonder what he got fer virgins?

    Were gettin excited cause he comes home on leave in February![​IMG]

    He's got a laptop with him, but where there at the internet, what little there be, is very expensive.  The few phones there are have huge lines a folks waitin ta use em.  Him an a buddy wen't in tagether an got a cell phone over there.  It ain't cheap, but they can call when they wan't ta that way.

    The calls er few, but we treasure each one.
