Christmas Pictures from Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Hey folks. Im down to less than 40 days left on this tour in Kandahar! SWEEET!

Got a few Christmas pictures while I was doing medevac out of a place named Patrol Base Wilson. Spent Christmas and New Years there.

Santa stopped in and wanted to check out the helicopter, so my fellow reindeer CW2 John Brown and I took him out and showed him around. Luckily Santa was packin an M-4 and some body armor this year! He now has some time behind an M-240 machine gun too. Im guessin his sleigh will be capable of putting some lead down range next year for his combat tour in Afghanistan!

Ya'll take care and see ya at SEFF this year!

Haha, that's hilarious... I'm trying to think up good captions for the pics of Santa with Ray Ban's and an M-240...

"Santa's back and he's ed off!"

"Forget the coal, this year the naughty ones get a lump of lead!"

Anyways, glad our men and women in the field get to enjoy some Christmas festivities. God Bless you guys, and thank you for your service!

Lookin forward to SEFF thats for sure. I hope ya'll stop by my area at one point or another and have a beer or 10 with the wife and I. Yep, she is planning to come along this time. Should make SEFF all the better.
