07 May 2007, Well, today is better, although still busy. Yesterday Kabul had an incident where 4 U.S. military personnel were shot intentionally by an Afghan National Army soldier out at the Pol-e-Charki Prison. This happened around 4 p.m. and although the event itself lasted only a few minutes at most, the investigation and scene lasted much longer. TF Phoenix elements responded and I was in the office till about 11:30 p.m. at which point there was nothing else for me to do. I did have a couple of breaks during the evening, but the events are enough to drain you for certain. None of the soldiers were from Phoenix. Here are two of the reports from the news. Report 1, report 2.
We are getting a bit of rain at the moment and I'm fine with that. The clouds started rolling in as I did my 3 miles today on the track.
Oops, I'm late for another meeting, and I have one more project after that, I better be going for now.
Be safe and have a great day.

Regardless from what unit these soldiers come, it's only natural that the events would be emotionally draining. Just remember that we're all praying for you, and in 49 days, you'll be headed home to Mrs. Dub and Miss Dub.

Keep Safe, D.

It is a damn shame when you do not know who your friends are. Kind of like the VC in my day, they worked on post during the days and tried to kill us at night. Be careful my friend, when do you update you counter.....

Keep your guard up more than ever now Sgt. Getting close to coming home can fog your judgement some. Don't let that happen.

You have two lovely ladies waiting for you. I know the cop in you is on alert all the time, but just don't let your guard down.

Stay safe and God bless ♥
