Sill cheering ya on Bodine
It's a touchy subject. There are things we are and are not allowed to talk about while out here, for safety purposes. I can say that I drive an MGS. Its sort of a tank with wheels instead of treads. But from what we are told the MGS isnt going to see much action out here. So I'll probably be doing foot patrols. Looking for IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices. Literally a bunch of garbage and home made explosives the Taliban have learned to Mcgyver together into shit that can do enough damage that ranges from blowing off your foot to destroying an entire vehicle.) Thats the most dangerous part of our jobs. The Taliban hide these IEDs pretty damn well sometimes. Some are burried in the ground or roads, some are disguised as something innocent like trash on the ground or a vase or anything you can think of. Sometimes they make them to specifically lure us in. Like disguising them as a pack of cigarettes or even a porno magazine. Imagine needing a smoke, finding a pack lying around somewhere, being dumb enough to check it, then suddenly your brains are all over the place. Not a pretty picture but it happens a lot.
Hideo Kojima took week long classes from several different military branches from several different countries to make sure he could get as accurate as possible to real military tactics. He might have even taken the same IED prevention classes Ive taken and got a few ideas from it.
Treyarch's devs could learn a thing or two from Hideo Kojima.
Bodine, I hope to see ya on G4's Bomb Squad.
That's reserved for EOD. (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) But hey, if our EOD guys just so happen to get on that show, you might see me on there too.
Hope you're doing well bro. I'm not sure where the Army is focused right now but from talking to some Marines who just got back, I'm hearing the situation is at least improving somewhat.. Haha there's so much I could talk about but OPSEC needs to be observed naturally.
Stay safe killer. Wish I could be out there with ya.

Oh Kevin, no you don't lol. Well, I dunno you seem pretty highspeed lol. Only thing I'm looking forward to is getting back home and buying that ring for kuppicakes. Then take her out to Jamaica. Vacation will be needed.
Hope you are doing well over there man. Got a buddy over there right now. He is due back home in April. Had another buddy serve 2 tours. It's takes balls to go over there IMO.
