Most of the team made it back from an overnight op today, tired and pissed. One of the SIGINT guys put it like this: "I think I'm going to go back to the 82nd, when I get back."

"Tired of special forces?"

"I just want to be able to do my job and shoot at the enemy, when it's called for..."

It's a shame when the ultimate "get it done" guys are so strapped by micromanagement.

I was told tonight that I'm out of here Saturday. I have a day to pack my things, distribute tea, wet wipes, and fruit that I won't have space to take with me, and take some pictures. WOOHOO! I'm really almost home.

So will you mailing address change? And if I send cookies again, will you get them quicker?

Miz Holly, I wouldn't mail anything to me until I know where I'll be, and for how long.

Thanks, Miz Lily.
