    Wifes report from Afgahnistan

    Just got a skype video call from my wife early today,the first one since she went over.

    I had to wake our daughter so she could see mom,at 3am I was expecting a fight to get her up, but when I said,Moms on the puter,I had an ELECTRIC MONKEY on my hands!
    After all the usual "miss you,back soon" things,talk turned to work. Dont worry people,the US Marines are giving you your monies worth to the Taliban.Jamie (my wife) works on the crew served weapons and says,shes not ever seen M2s, MK19s or 240Golfs in the shape the troops are bringing them back in,mind you not from abuse,but pure hard firing.
    These heavy weapons are being well maintained,kept spotless and well oiled,its just the amount of ammo they are firing is wearing out parts she claims the armorers have never changed.
    I am also to say thank yall for the treat boxes everyone sends for the troops.
    And Patti, a HUG and thank yous for the extra help with Jessies problem.
    thanks friends

    You're doing a great job. I'm sure your wife appreciates you keeping her little girl safe.

    thanks for sharing the update. Sounds like she's doing well and glad to hear we're given them hell!
