It was horrible though, we would het hit daily by rockets, way way worse than my last deployment in Zhari Kandarhar. All other branches only do 3-6 month deployment due thoer how smal they are, the USMC and Airforce are just too small to have people over there for over 6 months. We moved to a 9 month rotation, we no longer get R and R wich makes the deployment seem longer, but at month 9 it feels good bro.

The guy who "knew my boss" is a tool, and had no idea wtf he was talking about.
Welcome back.

You were in Zhari? No way!!! I definitely know a lot about zhari (zharay). I was with working with USDA and PRT and the Canadians military trying to build that agriculture center next to FOB Wilson. I original came into theater with USAID working for that medical clinic out side the district center but stayed and helped out with USDA on the ag cntr. I got some pix...maybe we can share to compare how zhari has progress.

The funny thing is that as a civilian, I have more "boots on the ground" then a bunch of chairborne rangers on e46. Sitting a a fob in KAF or BAF OR even Manas doing "fire guard" duty is not a combat development.

Again, welcome back. U and I have a lot in common.
