View Full Version : Coming Back from Iraq!

03-02-2008, 02:04 PM
I am a United States Marine and I had to leave game 7 months ago to deploy to Iraq for OIF. I am leaving this Godforsaken place in a few days and will return to my favorite hobby! I am a member of Oblivion and play as Bowe, Thaximus, or Sequell. To all of you who have played with me before I look forward to a great reunion and also to playing with those of you who I haven't had the pleasure.

Although I've never met you, it's great to hear that you're coming back from Iraq in one piece. Glad to have you back in Allied Territory. Have fun!

good to hear, Marine! it is probably just starting to get hot over there too, right? ;) i did my time there too, in the army [medevac unit] though. seen most of al anbar (as well as the rest of that ****hole), where i'm guessing you generally were.

I think you will find that the combat here is much less realistic than what you are used to.

This is most likely a good thing.

Welcome back, Marine, and thanks for doing what you do.

Well my old friend, it's good to hear that you made it through your tour in one piece. And while I would love to get back into a party with you, I'm afraid to say that I've moved to the Thelanis server. BUT, I have made a commitment to Blayhill to come back to Ghallanda for at least one night......so with that said I hope I get to run with you one more time.

One more thing, being former Army myself, as you know, I want to thank you for your service to our great nation. It's your sacrifice that allows us to sleep with both eyes closed every night without fear. Thank you!

Thank you all for the kind words. I am finally out of the ****hole that is Iraq, and am now awaiting my flight in good ol' Kuwait. Only a few more days until i'm happily loot whor*** and fighting a fun fight again (a man can take only so much of the "real world" until he goes a little crazy!). Shargus I would definately love to run with ya when you come over, tell Blayhill his V-22 motors are awesome in this nasty desert, and I look forward to running with you all again. Pious...I know you have better loot than I do now so all you need to do is outfit my characters with your new stuff:p!
