war is real

unconcerned, uncompromised and unconvoluted letters from a soldier getting ready to face war for the second time.

new sleeping bags. night-vision scopes for our m4 carbines. complete m.o.l.l.e kits for every soldier. a gerber tool for every soldier. just when you start thinking that the army doesn't care whether or not you have the right tools to do your job, they go and ship you a complete assload of new stuff that makes you feel a little special.

we started getting our rfi (rapid fielding initiative) stuff today, and i'm pretty stoked. i think the coolest thing i saw all day, besides the scopes, was the assault ladders. small-ass ladders that automatically extend with the push of a button, allowing us to reach windows and roofs in record time. of course, there's also the new sleeping bags, which are lighter and infinitely more comfortable than the old ones, even though they were pretty nice already.

it feels like we're going to war. which we are. but i feel like i could leave tomorrow and be almost nearly equipped to do everything i have to do.
