The mornings went by pretty smoothly on my days off. I would wake up around four, go running, workout until I almost blackout then take a cold shower. There is really not much to do around here if you have free time, of course, anything you would want to do. I always try to act like I'm busy so i don't get caught up in any paperwork or stuck working on a truck.

I can't call my family because its the middle of the night over there so I have to wait until about three or four in the morning my time to finally call them. I wont get to call them for a few days because I was just informed I'll be going away on mission, They wont tell me where or the exact time of departure. All i know is that its tomorrow. This usually means that your out all day in the hot sun. Long story short, we are probably escorting some important person or important supplies from point A to point B in the Humvee.

Whatever it is, Tomorrow is going to be a slow and miserable day in the sand.
