Suggestions

I typically avoid milblogs except for 13stop, Dude, and occasionally a couple others. But I just happened across 11Foxtrot's page, and I dig it. So it's going on the link list. He's already out, but he has a good way of narrating. He just fucking tells it, doesn't make it sound like a bad Hollywood pitch of shit. I hope he writes more.

All you rad and/or rotten bastards out there, if you come across anymore gold in the intarwebs, let me know and I'll link that good shit.

I found most of my miniDV tapes and only a few were broken. If I can find a way to charge the camera and get ahold of a firewire cable, I should be able to upload more videos. .50 cals perforating thick courtyard walls, explosions and more explosions, doors being kicked in, doors being kicked and not opening, breaking and entering, laughing at the IP's expense, an entire squad napping in a Stryker, who knows what else. I would've had video of us getting blown up on the rooftop, but at the last minute before I left the tent, I stuffed the camera back into my locker. Probably would've just broken the damn thing anyway.

  1. YEAH. Fucking do that!! Firewire cable costs just a couple bucks. Combat footage is damn great.

  2. Suspect,

    Found this little gem last year. Lt G is a true player and got shut down by the man for speaking his mind. Luckily somebody archived everything. He's an officer, but he's still short-timing. Book deal is in the works.

    Good shit.

  8. Hey so I'm a journalism student who has been following your blog for an iraq war and journalism class and I have to say your story about stop-loss and the push and tug of wanting to go back and not wanting to go back is really helping me out with this assignment, lol. Because it's really really intriguing and real and gritty and shitty. So, anyway. I just thought I'd let you know how amazing I think it is that you haven't just lost your shit yet, which I'm pretty sure most people would do in your situation and I would love to somehow get in further contact with you via e-mail or something, ask you some questions if you're interested.

    Thanks!

  9. Suspect, BT had a link for on his site for "Pink." Then BT got disappeared, and Pink is gone too. How about linking her?
    Thanks,

  10. Pink's is down completely also. Some one found out about it and made some noise about telling on her so she took it down.

  11. I can't believe everyone is getting shut down all of a sudden. BT's blog made me especially sad. I loved reading his stuff, and I don't recall him leaking anything he wasn't supposed to, so I don't get it.

    I guess you eeked under the wire of getting back before they started shutting everyone down.

  12. Wherever you are, Pink, I'm sorry! I liked hearing what you had to say. The story you told about the guy you were working with that wanted to kill you when you didn't want to be his "girlfriend" was incredible. Good luck, lady! z

  13. http://www.sororitysoldier.com You don't hear her whining like you and Nught

  14. Another fucking troll! Where DO they all come from!? Suspect, we need some bug spray.

  15. Why the fuck would I link something called "Sorority Soldier"? They just made a shitty Jessica Simpson movie about that shit anyway. And Goldie Whats-Her-Cookie did it a few decades ago.

    The worst part is that it really IS a link, not a rickroll or goatse's stretched-open rectum. Even more disturbing.

    I want to see a blog written by finance soldiers, one that explains just why they're such douchefucks. I would link that shit in a heartbeat.

  16. lol...yeah...

    anon... please dont compare me and my deployment to her.... national guard journalist.... really.... i dont know what you were doing 2 days ago and i dont know what she was doing 2 days ago, i was responding tending to an iraq who was shot by a 50 cal while driving his truck... he bleed out because we could go up to the truck because we thought there was a bomb in it... turns out there wasnt... he died... i stood there and looking at his after he bleed out.... have you ever seen someone shot to death.... when a suicide bomber blows up a market in iraq and kills 40 do you think she goes out to get a story... no, im the one who goes out..... have you ever seen human body parts scattered everywhere... have you ever looked a chunk of flesh the size of a football and try to determine if its part of a torso... or leg... have you ever been shot at or blown up yourself.... have you ever rendered first aid to a man who was shot in the face but still alive while taking fire...

    i dont know man... maybe i am a whinner

  17. I looked into that website, she isn't whining because she isn't doing anything! I can't believe someone would even attempt to compare and recommend that blog against Suspect or even Nught. It's the sorriest excuse for a blog I've seen so far. MORON. The photos she has taken are of other soldiers, real soldiers, training in what looks to be an air conditioned office. There is a photo with Suspect's hero Toby Keith and she looks like she is about to faint at his feet.
    This was a joke right?

  18. If it's a joke, their sense of humor is even more messed-up than mine.z

  19. Kristen King is a goddess, and I want her to have my children. No worries Nught, I'm sure she'll keep you safe if you ever get pinned down by enemy fire and are too scared to do anything about it.

  20. Fuck you dude, I'm a butch and I want her to have my children!! (We can do this thing!)

  21. Requesting "Rule 34" on Kristen King. Can Anon deliver?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, and Christina, sounds good. Email address is in the About Me section.

  23. i wrote a couple things. I don't mind stalkers, it's cool Anon. I'm working on collecting my tholughts and stuff. As for you Usual Suspect, wow. I just wanted to say thank you. I've been told you're a pretty big name in the blog world. Thank you.
