I've been in Iraq since Valentine's Day of this year and I'll be heading home pretty soon. This deployment has helped me realize who my friends really are and I have gotten myself into a friendship that is going into a great direction. I've spent almost all of my free time with him since the day we got here and things have really taken off. We know each other very well now and can spend hours and hours with each other just talking, joking, flirting, or just sitting and doing nothing. Just being in his presence is good enough for me. I can't wait to go home and see what happens between us.

I spent all of July in Fallujah searching female Iraqis as they came into the city. They were almost all disgusting and smelly, but it was an experience that hardly anyone else does. I have a lot of good memories and stories to tell from it, even if that's all I got out of it. It was definately a much needed break from the guard force life here on Blue Diamond, but I really missed my friends (especially Danny) while I was over there. Luckily I had Comly there to keep me entertained. We took a lot of pictures and made plenty of silly videos while we were on post and chillin' in the trailers back on the base. I did meet a few cool people while I was out there also.

Being in Iraq has really changed my perspective on a lot of things, but especially on how well we have it in America. We don't realize as Americans how much worse life could be.
