|| pissed off
I'm irritated and I'm not too sure why. It's enough for me to get up out of bed and leave the tent because I couldn't sleep. I'm in a different world from the real war; I'm at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. We have a meeting tomorrow and had to stay the night. These bastards draw the same pay and benefits that we do up north in the real combat zone, and these assholes get "combat patches" for serving in this paradise too. These fuckbags don't deserve one iota of what the Soldiers up north get, getting blown up, mortared, and shot at and all. The amenities here that I've experienced make me feel guilty as fuck for being here, because I know what I left and that the rest of my guys are still there. 19 more days and they'll be here with me though. On the way down here from Camp Virginia we took "the scenic route". We stopped at the shore of the Persian Gulf and took some pictures, which was nice. Mine always come out gay, I guess my body isn't photogenic. Maybe I'll post them later on. It's fucking hot here, and I just can't wait to leave this bitch. Virginia is crowded with people going north and home, its ridiculous. Theres troops there from Estonia, Slovakia, Rep. of Georgia, Korea, El Salvador, and some other fucking foreigners. They're like tourists and clog up the god damn PX and the internet and phones. Time is winding down here, and I just want to leave this horseshit behind. One of the douche bags here with me (theres only 3 of us sent here to Kuwait early to set up stuff for our main body) is hell bent on getting our flight changed 3 days prior to what it is. I wish he'd just leave it be, its just 3 god damn days. He's old and he's pissing me off. It's his personal motives hes going by to do this, not professional motives for the good of the unit. He's only doing it for him and for his reasons, so I don't support it. Sure, I'd like to get home as soon as possible, but I'm not going to piss off everyone from my battalion commander right up to the CFLCC commanding general just for 3 days. Oh well. He's just pissed off because he got a lesser award than everyone else. So fuck him, fuck the pogue ass bitches at Arifjan, fuck Kuwait and Iraq, and I'm out.
