While I was playing with Rigel and making lunch and talking to Joe online, I received an IM.
we just had incoming
more to follow
it was much closer this time, i felt it
I was chatting with Joe while a group of people were igniting rockets to aim at his FOB. My life could have changed in that single moment. His life could have ended. Joe is very positive that he is in a safe spot and tells me the enemy cant aim. But even a blind squirrel eventually finds a nut. Their aim doesn't have to be perfect, they just have to be persistent. They have fired on this FOB two nights in a row. Joe has been told that this is very abnormal and they must suspect that there are new people on the FOB. And it will slow down, in theory.
But I guess what I realized today was that while we are shopping and sleeping and eating and watching TV, there is a whole different story playing out on the other side of the globe.
Please keep our troops in your thoughts.
America isn't at war. Our soldiers are at war. America is at the mall.
