My voice from the other side of the Styx

Since I now can only get on LJ at the MWR, and my visits here are rarer and rarer, I feel almost as if I'm a ghost. Maybe I said that already. Once in a while I get the energy up to make my presence known. Few notice.

Life here is getting worse. It's cold now, and having to go to the shower or latrine in freezing rain is no fun. Worse, the sergeant-major for the site wants to put 16 people in a tent, with a body in the top and bottom of each bunk cot. Never mind that the bunk cots are structurally unsound, and have been shown to collapse if two people are in it. Never mind that there is plenty of room for enough tent room for everyone. He has to show that his dick is huge by inflicting misery that's not necessary. Hey, he's a STRONG and HOOAH sergeant-major. Right? RIGHT???

I work 7 days a week still, thanks for asking, and once we move out to the new facility by where I live, I will have no internet access at all. Nor a PX, MWR, decent gym or anything that keeps soldiers from insanity.

I put up protective bindrunes, but if my top bunk gets occupied...expect the Sarge to choke a bitch.

Ye gods. I'm so sorry.

It is always, always good to hear from you. Every time I hear "Afghanistan" on the news I think of you...which means daily, if not more often. I wish I could do something more temporal, but my finances won't allow.

I feel terribly guilty that I have been too distracted to pray for you in a few days. It's finals, and in the scheme of things I doubt it matters much, but it breaks my heart to hear that this is the sort of thing they are putting you through.

I love and care about you, and that's all I can think to say.

Sending you hugs and ass-kicking bindrunes.

Linda and I are always thinking of you, and wishing you well.

BTW, what does a rune of asskicking look like, anyway?

More hugs - more caring - more prayers. Keep in mind that even if you don't show up here, you show up in my mind and I have the postcard hanging on my fridge.

I'm also curious about the rune of an asskicking

Stay strong

Yurk. Are you still coming on leave in a bit?

While I don't often comment, I *do* read everything and think about you whenever I hear about the war on the news.

I always notice; I just rarely have anything to say. Except now, which is UGH I'm sorry. :(

If we send good things to americanstd, will you still be able to get them? I have a Thing in mind, it's just waiting till I get the skill to do it.

Thinking of you :( And when is your shiny, happy, leave?

I miss you on you LJ.

This sounds terrible.

You're not forgotten, Tep, even if you don't post. You're still in my prayers.
Dec. 13th, 2009 02:17 pm (UTC)
ugh. Don't mention the Styx while you're serving over there. Had me worried :P

I'm sorry the sergeant-major is making things worse unnecessarily.

Have had bad experiences with SGM's on deployment. They have nothing better to do, I guess.
