Ok, ETA: just added more pics from 3rd Platoon, the Ace Of Spade guys (commonly known to me as the 3rd Herd) But a great bunch of guys nonetheless! Hope you enjoy them!


Just finishing up my four day pass after all the training is done, Wife came out to visit and has enjoyed wisconsin so far. Looks like we are heading out the 16th on our way to Camp Q-West up in northern iraq. If anyone is in the AO once we get out there, let me know and lets see if we can hook up! I wanted to say thanks for all the CG'ers who helped us out with the medic bags, the medics love em! Will start posting pics/video once I get them all sorted out and all. Got some great stuff from the guys on pass doing the oktoberfest here in wisconsin!

It snowed on us in Mosul in January.

Even down in Balad it was horrible. The Rest of the Northern Hemisphere considers Nov 1 to the first day of Winter. Iraq did not disappoint. It went from 'comfortable' to 'Holy crap, driver pull over and the loader and I will take turns standing behind the turbine for a few minutes' overnight.

HOLY SHIZZZZZ. . . . .. . IT IS COLD AS HELL HERE!!!! WTF OVER?!?!? I thinking its going to be nice and toasty, first day its mid-80's thats all good, then all of a sudden, 6:35 pm local time, sunset, and then blammo!!!!! I swear to god I was taking a whizz and it froze in my hand! This seriously isnt funny anymore, somebody turn the heat back on!

Yep, were here now, got advanced a couple of days early-ish and landed on the morning of the 1st. C-17 ride with a company sized element, plus all luggage, need I say more? The unit were replacing seems ok, they are out of Indiana, not too smart, but they sure do work hard!

Guy was bragging to me how he runs his convoys nice and slow so they can detect IED's . . ."I havent been IED'ed yet, because we are that damn good!" well, we all know you cant brag like that to the war gods and not chap their hindquarters about it, so sure enough, he heads out on patrol and gets IED'ed, needless to say, I had to smartmouth him with a little Norte Kali. . . .
"Dude. . . That Hella Sucked For You. . . . You Got Hella IED"ed after you talked HELLA SMACK! Figured it would take him a while since all he says is "yawll ill figger idout" Good time for everyone!

Got a address for you guys too!

Please feel free to send all gun magazines, porn (dvd type) old movies(dvd type), midgets, beef jerky, pogey bait, hooahhs, baby wipes, Jenkem, etc etc to the above listed Calguns members and we will distribute appropriately!

Now, if any of you guys are wanting souveniers from over here, be it persian rugs, hadji clothes, genuine hookahs from China, knockoff purses/shoes for the wife so you can fake that you spent $400 on a purse for her to explain the next unauthorized gun buy, please feel free to let me know and we can set something up where I find out how much it costs with shipping etc etc and we get it out to ya!

On a sad note, a guy in the unit we are attached to, decided to end things for himself after he got a dear john from his wife, had only been in country a few weeks. Sad, but par for the course as stress management isnt really applied out here as much as it should. Feel bad, but cant say either way as I didnt know him at all.

Other than that, things are good, will be putting up pics soon! Thanks for all the support and well wishes guys!

Bill "Stormfeather" out til next update in a few days when we actually get real hadji internet!

Now, what did you think it was? It's a desert, of course, it's cold after sunset. How about some light infantry advice - if you run fast and long, it gets warmer :)

Be safe, and save the bragging for when you come home, just look at that guy from Indiana.

um. . . . ok. . .nobodys bragging here, but thanks for your input. Im sure if you know me as many do here, I have a somewhat warped sense of humor. Too many ex wives and too much Hoppes #9 will do that to you. Yes, I know its a desert, and yes Ive been here before. My 12 years in the Marines taught me everything I need to know about staying warm, including how to cuddle up butt2nut if need be! (wheres Soldier415 when I need him?) Not sure where you were heading with this response, but maybe its just late and im reading it wrong. Thanks for the input though!

I'm home on a two day pass. I regret to inform you that you will need to find someone else to spoon with, as I will be going to the other sandbox. There's some Navy guys running around there right? :D

What?! Navy guy?! Did you just go THERE! C'mon now, we "green side" Navy guys ALWAYS made Army the little spoon. :D

Gents, glad you made it safely. Stay in touch as much as possible. Get a hook-up in supply. It amazing what they can get you when they WANT to get something. As a "Doc", the more people that I helped the more they wanted to help me. You know how that goes. At least you have a DFAC. That was the thing that we missed most in Walid.


I will get a package together for you, but only because you were prior Marine. :p J/K. If there's anything specific let us know and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks Doc!
Our DFAC is actually pretty good, every sunday is steak/lobster/crab legs/shrimp night aka surf & turf.
Of course its a few blocks to the DFAC. . . . . start walking GI Joe!
We dont really have any corpsmen running around, but we got a whole lot of air farce types. We may just have to liberate them of their manliness and make them our snugglebunnys! JK!(egad did I actually just say that?!?)
Any help with the internet stuff mentioned in http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=133554

So here it is the first of december, things have been crazy around here pretty much. It decided to rain on us for a day and a half straight, not normally a big deal anywhere else in the world, but here it caused a whole hell of alot of manmade lakes! needless to say, was funny to laugh at, but crazy how much water that the ground just couldnt absorb! Pics will follow soon!

Other than that, things have been pretty calm for the most part. Some random potshots in Mosul made for a exciting moment for a couple of our new guys, but then they didnt realize that Mosul is pretty much nothing but random gunfire all day long! heheh! I heard a guy got sniped while standing in a promtion ceremony up there last week. Guess from now on, nobody is going to want to be promoted! Happened just as our convoy was rolling thru. Needless to say, its got the new guys on edge a bit, but they are being professional about everthing, so I guess that counts for something.

Lots of care packages from elementary schools coming in, im not sure if these kids just dont know how to express what they mean to say, or they just are using that age thing as an eexcuse! The letter from my little kid in my care package said "Dear W. H. , my name is (OpSec) and I hope you survive in Iraq, have a good day. . . ." Now tell me, doesnt that just get your goat up? Any other time I think I would be upset, but I actually saw this as kind of funny! I almost wanted to write back and say "Gee kid, I hope I survive too!" But the care package was still nice though.

Our XO's wife put together a nice deal for us, they took up a collection and did a fundraiser and got us a bunch of bicycles. We are pretty far away from anything and even though there are buses that run, sometimes it is a PITA to wait for a bus when its too far to walk quickly, but can biked easily.

I plan on going on a bike trip thru-out the base and seeing how many pics I can get of cool stuff left over from the Saddam Era. Hopefully I will be able to post those soon! Im getting lots of pictures, but I have to wait til I get personal internet before I can download them onto photobucket! .mil internet doesnt allow thumbdrives to transfer files.

As I mentioned before, if anyone wants some cool Iraqi souvenirs, please let me know and I will go down to the local souk and see if I can find anything. I can get persian rugs sent back to cali for about $45.00 and approximately $175.00 a rug. Basic size is 8x12 I think. Thy also have some pretty nice hookas, puzzle rings, chess sets, local crystal decanter/drinking sets, really good looking knockoff purses & watches, stuff like that.

Other than that, basically waiting for my kid to be born so I can fly home and visit him and the wife, miss them bunches right now, and not having internet really sucks as its hard to see the day to day changes in things. But hopefully Mcubed gets us squared away with that stuff for the internet!

More to follow soon, have a great day and keep your powder dry!

I'm home on a two day pass. I regret to inform you that you will need to find someone else to spoon with, as I will be going to the other sandbox. There's some Navy guys running around there right? :D

Take care of yourself and stay safe. Is your AKO Bill or William?

HEY now!

only USN Chief is like that...

Iraqis love to paint their houses pink for some reason.... there's a big pink house in the middle of nowhere off Minneapolis that's surrounded with a fence and c-wire, looks like a really quaint little homestead until you see the jail-like fence around it.

Then you've got the "Pepto Bismol" truck stop on Tampa heading south, very classy looking establishment for a mud hut painted bright pink..... :D

My first response was WTF?!?!?!?
My next response was to look for a return address. . .no such luck!

Ok, thanks have to go out to whomever sent the care package with the return address listed as "Calguns Favorite Member" Not only was that funny as hell, it also made my day! Now, obviously it was in unparalleled bad taste, but I can see the humor in it! I will make sure to um. . . pass the magazines onto the next Navy guy I see, and im not sure what to do with the other "item"! Maybe make a mini-beer-bong out of it?!?!?:eek:
Im going to say the top suspects for the guilty party would be Soldier415, (although it did come from california, and not the "stan") Marceleo5150, or USN_Chief, possibly Saigon. . .
Will the guilty party please stand up, because you just set a new standard of lowness! :thumbsup:

Love the shirts! these are pretty much the cats meow compared to other "clothing innovations" theyve pulled out of their ***! They hold up really good, and are great to wear with the IOTV or OTV. Very Comfy!

Depending on which model you are in, they range from tight squeeze to actually not bad. The seats arent the most comfortable, imagine those nascar style racing seats, which arent bad, but then you add the OTV, plates, mag pouches, helmet, and all the gear you wear, then it becomes somewhat of a nuisance!



Ok. . . . now for a little trip thru Iraq!. . . . .

What kind of camera do you have ?

Stormfeather
03-09-2009, 2:59 PM
apparently not a good one! some cheap little kodak digital camera. 10 megapixel, not sure if thats good or not. I was hoping to get better pics out of it as we were driving along the roads, they just seem to blurry unlike the last camera i had that didnt survive the fall when Orion was born!

yes, but im not as "technology savvy" as some guys out here! Im still working on figuring out the flash settings! The whole "moving while taking a picture" thing" may be asking too much! hahahah! I will work on it though!

Do me a favor and wear all of your MARPAT head to toe and spray paint your gun when your out there. Please don't wear a black leg holster or have woodland camo gear on you. Remember they cant shoot what they cant see.
Oh yeah get a Vortex or some kind of good flash hider.
If you need us to help you buy it start a post I ll pitch in to know you got what you need to make it home.

Stormfeather
03-17-2009, 3:19 PM
Believe it or not, we arent allowed to spray paint our guns. Cant change out the flash hiders either. I actually brought out a bunch of flash hiders, and never used them because of this.


Sytfu-RR & Wokmaster, just got back off mission, yes we got the stuff and thank you very much!

Some fun pics from today. . . gotta love the weather around here! I was trying to take pics of them all, at one point I counted over 27 Dust Devils of huge size all at once, was trying to get good pics of them, but they was too far in the distance.
