Iraq “An average day”

Me driving

This is me in the driver’s seat of a Hum-v in combat. You can see that I am wearing a neck protector, scissors, medical pocket, and protective eyewear.

In the truck we were suppose to wear our helmets but usually we took them off if the truck was stopped.

Hunging out in my roomWalking patrol

Checking vehicals

I thought the room picture was interesting because it shows how we would try our hardest to enjoy the same things we did when we were home, only now there is an M16 on the bed.

The next picture is us setting up a vehical check point outside falujia. We would call them pop-checkpoints because we would set them up about 5 times a day and they would be set up in about 2- 5 minutes.

The third photo is of us doing a walking patrol in a shanty town called Horibas.

Searching for bombsMorning prepCooler in our truckThese are some other shots I found that were pretty interesting. I like the cooler shot. We drank tons of energy drinks, “it can’t be healthy”.
