Let me see, I'll start by saying thanks to everyone that posted on my first blog. When I started it I had no idea what I was in store for and didn't know if I would do it again. Now I feel obligated to do so and maybe there is just a small bit of pressure to deliver another great blog. Maybe not, lol! I am so glad that the first one is out of the way and now I am officially on the blog bus>>>>>
Okay, maybe that is going a little overboard but hey, I thought it was funny.
Well with this post I wanted to share with everyone a little bit of what myself and some of my fellow soldiers endured sometimes on a daily basis while deployed.
As you can see it was just nasty at times. So next time you feel like complaining about the weather just remember what our soldiers are overseas enduring and say a prayer for them. These are pics from my camera so believe me when I say it wasn't any fun on this particular day! To go along with these wonderful weather conditions that you see above most days during the summer the temps vary from 110-140 degrees Fahrenheit. That makes the time there so much more fun. <sarcasm>
Notice the temperature pegged out over 120!
If you can't tell the picture above was IN THE SHADE! To say I am glad to be home is an understatement. I would also like to take this opportunity to push a couple of websites that supported me while I was there and continue to support the troops. Just click here to adopt a soldier from Soldiers Angels. It is a great program and another I like is Treat the Troops which sends cookies to troops and you can make donations if you would like. If my last blog got the attention it got a blog for the troops had better generate some serious traffic. If you know a soldier and you have his/her address, you better at least click on treat the troops and request some cookies for them.
