Forward Progress

My replacement just arrived! He has the same look I had when I got here – dazed and confused. I gave him the standard speech. Namely, he should expect to take one day for every hour of time difference in order to adjust. He's coming from Ft. Bliss, Texas, and that's 10 hours behind. He's been in country for 4 days, so he's got about another week before he gets right. Hopefully I'll be gone before that happens.

For now, I'll leave you with more interesting soldier last names I've encountered recently.

TEETS
THOUSAND
COON
KING
QUEEN

And my favorite…
FAREWELL

My friend Jaime had a girl that her group of friends called Cum Dumpster. I was told this years ago and still can't stop smiling. Such a cruel and fantastic nickname.

Don't do anything stupid in your final days out there doc. Get home safe and crush Vegas.

Please get back soon, with Farve retiring the wife will need a compassionate shoulder to cry on.

Bracelet - believe it or not, these weren't nicknames. They are the actual last names of these soldiers. That said, do you have CD's number? On second thought - my wife reads this. Just give it to me in Vegas...
