Dumb things I did....



From the Soldier side: My deployment to Bosnia in 2003 brings back some fond memories. People think I'm joking when I say it was one of the best jobs I've ever had in my life...it was a great mission!
There were some times when it sucked...usually when we had to be at the big camp, Eagle Base in Tuzula. But when we were out the wire, I loved it.
When we first got there in the Summer of 03', our team was at a very small camp, Camp Cody in the city of Ugljevik, Bosnia. Just before our rotation got there, the camp was shared by the Americans and the Russians. After the Russians left, the camp was very small.... we never told people that there were only about 40 of us there!
We had the best chow hall I've evern eaten in. The Bosnian guy in charge of the mess hall really took good care of us.
Life was good. But, every once in awhile something has to happen where you wonder if there really is a guy named Murphy and he really did write a book of laws. Murphy's Laws.
The dumb things I did in Bosnia were not part of my duty or mission...they were just dumb things....
To be cont....

If you study the war in Bosnia, there were over 200,000 killed. The Useless Nations (UN)was totally less than useless. They actually had UN soldiers taken as hostages.
Finally NATO had to go in with the US ARMY leading the way. They built the longest temp military bridge to date for that mission.
bla bla bla...who gives a shit.
