Friends:

 

Just talked to a guy in B-Dad yesterday about some security work in The Box.

He's putting together a team now and needs a gunner/vehicle specialist.

 

In these deals your always a gunner first.

But, more and more these PMC's (para military companies) are needing people that have other skills like vehicle maintainer's, Comm's personel, medic's (always), etc.  

 

"The Company", who shall remain nameless for OPSEC purposes, runs the roads shadowing convoy's outside the wire.

 

I told The Warden I was going there "on assignment" for The OT to do an exclusive on the weapons and optics systems our Brother's are using.  

 

This deal is NOT a 100% go at this time, as we are working out the details, but it seems I'll be deploying soon. Maybe next week.

 

Anywho....

The Warden and myself would appreciate a prayer or two thrown in cheaptricks direction next time you heathens think of it.

 

cheaptrick.....Standing by.

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

You sound excited about the venture. Be sure to take you notebook computer and Satellite link so that we can get real time updates from you daily. God bless and will pray for your safe return. Hope you get to shoot up a lot of our government ammo on your days off.

Stay in touch and watch your ass, cheaptrick.

 

A friend of mine is a rabbi, I'll ask him to put in a good word for you.

Thanks Chris.

The tour is around 90 days.

Could turn into 6 months, but I'm maxed out at that duration.

I'm not sure I have enough luck left over for more time than that.

 

Again, it's a definate maybe. I have been on "stand by" before.

These PMC's act exactly like the military. Hurry up and wait.

 

But, I really appreciate the kind words and prayers.

Thanks.

No, Mary.

Still standing by.

Like I said when I started this thread, it may or may not happen.

It's cool with me either way.

 

I did hear "The Company" got hit last week, injuring 6 team members.

No KIA's, thankfully.

 

I appreciate you checking in on me.
