surreallism at its finest... [Oct. 5th, 2006|06:13 pm]
James Westfall and Dr. Kenneth Noisewater
Withen a week, I'm leaving for Iraq. I can't say exactly when on the net. Reporting troops movements over the net is highly frowned upon in my profession. Anyway, I should be there for about a year, give or take about 4-5 months depending on if I get extended or not. Awesome thing is though I found out I should be able to have the internet in my room over there. It's like a hundred bucks but, it will be worth it over there. Aren't occupations great? My goal is to use my digital (or webcam if I buy one) over there as sort of a video diary. I prolly end of using youtube.com. I just want to do that, since you only get to hear from the media over here about whats going on. I'd like to shed some truth on the situation, weither it is bad or good.

I'm already starting to feel the effects of a pending deployment. I sleep really restless and wake up constantly from dreams. Not all of them nightmares, just very real-vivid dreams. I'm sure it's somewhat normal,it's never me who is in them ither. It's people that I work with. I'm going to stop before I sound insane.

For now I'm signing off, I'll answer whatever cell-phone,email,etc. untill I can't get signal anymore. so feel free to call or write me. (770)880.5831

And MY Hand Takes Hold On Judgement
I Will Take Vengence Upon Mine Enemies

And Count Me Among Thy Saints."

Thoughts from the edge [Jul. 30th, 2006|02:19 am]

I don't know where to begin nor where to end, all I know is where I am standing.

I can't begain to explain how weird and out of touch I feel at the moment. Since I've been back, sometimes I feel like I'm not who I use to be. To my friends and shit they haven't noticed a change, but I can feel it on the inside. Its fucking surreal, barely even noticeable to me, and it happens in a thought or something minor like that.

I can't watch the news anymore, It gets more and more fucking depressing every god damned day. Supposedly were sending 17,000 more troops over, which is good we need it in the middle east. The situation has gotten too far out of control and the world is way to fucking small now to let crazies still be around. At the same time it makes me nervous, because its me whos going. I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't nervous about going to war. At the same time I knew I was going to go and can't complain I signed and I choose the infantry. Don't be confused I'm not second guessing me choice, I still would have signed and still choose the infantry, I'd feel proud if I die for my country but, It would be unnatural and unhuman for me to say I'm not scared of dieing. I feel It's my duty now and I am sick and tired of seeing people sitting around just watching the world unfold before them without acting. We may be doing more harm than good, but at least it's some good and to a people that have known only oppression since day one. All I know is this, I love my job, I believe deep down what I am doing will be good in the long run, I love being and an infantryman the backbone of this country, but I don't want to die nor do I want to see those around me get hurt. I just want to help people that are helpless and not have to do something thats is in someones elses politics. I don't know where I'm going with this or if you even care I just wanted to say it because I've been voiceless for a long time, for clarity.

I may have a voice of infinate syllables and vowels but it has always been said better.

So close to home, I can taste it in my spit. [Jul. 11th, 2006|04:37 pm]

I'm done, finally fucking done. All I have left to do is two weeks of this bullshit class learning how to shoot a missle. I started it yesterday it's a fucking joke. The hard part is staying awake in the class. After this it's atlanta for 14 days then to ft.myers and then off to Colorado. I have nights and weekends off now and have my cellphone back so give me a call after 1730, thats 5:30 for you civilians.

anyways I'l have pictures of my graduation soon and be home sooner. Get your keg taps ready and lock you sisters up.

Three more weeks and I'm through.After that I'll be in training again for two weeks and then get to come home. I can't wait, I starting to be worn thin.

I don't really know what to say except, I hope the civilian world hasn't forgotten me.

"It is not the critic who counts;not the man who pointsout how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who know the great enthusiams, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause. who at the best knows in the end the trimph of high acheivement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while doing greatly. so that his place shall never be with thos cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
-theodore roosevelt

So training to be an infantrymen is going great. training is hard or exhasting but, It'll be worth it in the long run. I've been told that I am in the hardest company in our battalion, I don't know if it's true. I don't even really know what to say, this is culture shock too me. so I'll sum it up.

I graduate in 6 weeks as an infantry soldier and get me blue chord

I'm going to be stationed in Colorado

I'm going to Iraq in december

I'll have about 15 days before I have to go to Colorado once I graduate and will break it up between fort myers and Atlanta.

I'm loving life and training hard

Don't ever take anything for granted the things you think are boring and meaningless I would do anything for right now.

Whys the sky blue?
Because god loves the infantry.
