02 July 2006, Only 2 days till America celebrates Independence Day. Mrs. Dub is probably relieved I am deployed at this time of year. If I was home I would be bugging her about buying fireworks. I'm sure that she would still rather have me home. It's been a slow weekend and in this kind of place, that's a good thing. I've meet several guys who "wish" they could see some action. I have to explain to them that this isn't something to wish for, that this typically means someone is shooting at them and they usually have the advantage of shooting first.
I've actually been sitting here for almost an hour and really haven't had anything to write. Of course, Capt C hooked up a t.v. and was watching My Name is Earl. Now, really, was that fair. I have already mentioned if it's loud and stupid I'm probably watching it.
LTC Y and I played two more ping pong games, I'm gaining on him. 9-21 and 7-21. That's 16 points I racked up today. Well, I guess I'll make this post a short one. It's been a long day, and I still have to be at work in the morning.

Yes, I do wish you were here to take your daughter shopping for fireworks -- because like beer and cigarretes, I refuse to buy them for her! I was moved to tears at church on Sunday when we began the service with the Pledge of Allegiance, The National Anthem, America the Beautiful, and several other patriotic songs. We are so very PROUD of You, and just like Toby's song -- You Are An American Solider! Your family misses you this 4th of July (and everyday)
