Saddest day ever. Six months. Security Forces.

At least she won't be leaving the base.

Plus she left me her car. 2009 Mazda 3 sport.

I wonder if they would get mad if I sent her cruiser to Iraq.

I sent my wife to Afghanistan for six months.
Came back with an exwife and she kept my Litespeed she took with her.

Whatever you do, you be as sweet as sugar in your emails, don't get mad over the phone, send goodies, kiss her high and pert ass if you want to keep her. The minute you make her mad, sad, angry or horny there will be ten swinging dicks to step in and take your place.

And don't wreck the car, or have sex in it, as others have suggested. Just remember, they have video cameras over there too. Revenge is a real whore.

Keep it in perspective by thinking of the happiest day ever, when she steps back off that plane 6 months from now.

Keep positive and be supportive.

She's at Creech right now training. Its going good. My bed feels pretty empty. I plan on sending her some cruise tickets halfway though her deployment.

Jhon E, what do you know about Balad? Pretty safe? I am worried as piss about her.

I've been to Balad AB 3 times now so I can give you a little insight. Balad is probably one of the safest bases in Iraq. There are rocket and mortar attacks daily, I am not trying to scare you just giving you the facts. On a good note though, the rockets and mortars are 1950's soviet and chinese and rarely detonate. There is also a FANTASTIC warning system that she will def. tell you about while she is there. There were 12 Phalanx radar automated guns all around the base. 2000rds a second and they are explosive rounds so they don't fall back down. Such a badass experience and LOUD.


While I was there, there was only 1 injury from a mortar because the idiot ran instead of hit the deck when the alarm went off.

Tell her to make the most of her time there and enjoy the experience.

My most rewarding experience while there was working in the base hospital which is the largest and busiest in Iraq.

If you need any more info or helpful tips or if she needs some more info about the base, how to get around the fastest, etc don't hesitate to pm me or email me at rufusphotography@mac.com

Front Range, dude...
Rufus hit it pretty well...I have only passed through Balad en route to other places. But it has a good rep these days.

Dont count days, it will only make it longer for you.
Creech is worse than Balad. What a sh*t hole...

Thanks Rufus & Jhon E. That gun is awesome. I feel better about it. Yeah, it's only been a few days, but I've already noticed that the hone is not a substitute for hanging out.

I wish I was getting deployed at the same time. It would make my life a lot easier.

I just wrecker her car. No lie. Drove through a barbed wire fence. Not much damage. The bumper is jacked up and the wiring harness for the forward blinker on the left side was ripped out.

Possibly loosing the gf when i tell her tomorrow... She specifically told me to drive it very carefully. She got it less than four months ago...

How the hell do you drive through a barbed wire fence?

You deserve whatever punishment she throws your way.

I missed a stop sign, Drove across a street, hit the fence post or whatever, and drove over it.

It was really ****ty weather last night. I'm glad the car didn't get stuck in the mud.

All the people in my shop saw it happen.

Edit: I acknowledge all fault. It was my bad, the bad weather didn't help my last minute slaming on the breaks, the abs went into overdrive trying to stop me.

The single car accident, no one to blame but the DOT, auto manufacturer, the weather channel, Isaac Newton and god. PM Toshi for some good excuses.

behind you, don't wait up.
Did you ever think that maybe she has more important things on her mind right now?

You could have fixed the damage to her car and told her about it after she returned.

No. it's my fault. I blew through a stop sign.

She called me back, "I'm not mad, I'm glad your safe, get it fixed, I love you."


So, I canceled my leave, and will be taking it to the body shop tomorrow.

Ask Loco? He hit a barbed wire fence eight feet off the side of a perfectly straight road while on his bike.
:rofl:

Sometimes I think you post here for the sole purpose of humiliating loco.






Of course, we all appreciate your efforts.

cars fixed. I just broke up with her. It was dirty.

"I really liked you" "I'm going to die single" "Your only the second person in my life who really treated me nice" "I feel like everything you told me was a lie" "I told my whole family about you"

I started crying.
I know I'll cheat. I wanted to break up before that happened. Or before it happened to me.

Six months is a long time. We can't even figure out what to talk about on the phone. It's just awkward.

I hate breaking up. I always feel like a **** bag.
