This a rare opportunity to go along on a training mission aboard a Black Hawk helicopter. These are just some of the phoyos that I was able to get. Afghanistan os a very beutiful country with lots of green lands.

Well as you can very well see I cant keep up with this blogging stuff. Actually I suck at it. Any way here we go, yes I am going to make an entry don't go into shock. If you didn't know I am still here in Afghanistan completeing a 10 month deployment. I have been working for a military company that takes in junk and broken items from units over here. I get to have fun with this stuff if it cant be used any more we get to destroy it. This can entail burning, cutting, smashing what ever it takes to make unusable by the Afghany nieghbors. I have completed seven months of this tour with a month togo for a two week rest and relaxtion break from here. I should make it home in time for the birth of our new son (Trevor John or T.J.). Other than what I said not much has changed. I get up, I eat, and then I sleep and then I repeat again and again. Ya I know real exciting. Ok this is exceeding my limit on what I can type. So I will try to enter more again soon.

Well its been a few days since I added to this blog. As the days go by its progressivly getting hotter and the winds havent let up. We are in what they call the 120 days of wind. These winds will last from now until sometime around September, October. I was asked if I would stay or extend to make my tour a full year. With baby on the way, I have to give this allot of thought. This tour is and has been a huge differance compared to the last.
