Today was impossible: guys coming in from firebases, guys going out to firebases, my CO heading off for a mission, and me supposed to cover down at camp while other people are having all the fun. (Okay, humping 45 pounds of weapons and gear plus a 50-pound pack at 7,200 feet elevation is a lot more fun after its all over.) Bottom line, I didnt write a blessed word today. Still, I know myself and I know the feel of this story; Ill finish it sometime in the next three days. Watch and see.
