Topic: Welcome to Iraq
So yeah, it's been awhile since I posted on here. But, I hope I have legend status - which means I can post whenever I want, about whatever I want.
For those of you that know me, you know I am a computer nerd for the Air Force. Nonetheless, the Army can not fill their own slots and I have been tagged for convoy security in Iraq.
So, I will be the convoy commander for 20-30 trucks starting in April. I am leaving for training (it's called the Basic Urban Combat and Convoy course, but we call it "Be A Soldier" training) on 16 March.
Nonethteless, I ask for your thoughts and prayers during this time in my life. The convoy attacks have died down and I am pretty confident I will retun to my wife and daughter in one piece. I will be keeping my personal blog (michaelwales.com) up to date with my location and current news as I can.
