I won't take this the wrong way and get offended, although I was close to it.
It was a good weekend, we rode out to our training site in Blackhawk helicopters, conducted some convoy operations, ran through a mock Iraqi village, and did a few other things. The convoy ops and mock village were very intense, nothing like getting ambushed with small arms fire and a 50-cal MG from 3 sides while IED's go off on your lead and trail vehicles, or having 20 'Iraqi villagers' screaming at you while one of them tries to sneak up on your squad with a suicide vest.
Oh hey... the game started the day I hoped it wouldn't. Maybe I should leave more often?
