I made this little video with my camera the day I left the berm! I tryed to upload it before now, but it wasn’t working for some reason. So I thought I would try it one more time! Ha! I was so happy to go back “home”, well, to the safe and relatively quiet COB Speicher. My home for now. I was just so happy to turn in laundry, have some clean clothes, take a shower, flush a toliet in a clean and safe ladies latrine, and see my scrappy girlies and fellow female Soldiers. Glad it is over and hope that that berm stops many enemy terrorists for years and years to come, so we Americans don’t have to come back ever!
AND…If you are curious at all about what it is like to ride on a patrol these days, here is a clip of that.
