Today a bee on the M249 range stung me. It got my left ring finger. I was getting ready to qualify when it stung me. I swept it away like a fly with my hand and that’s when it happened. It wasn’t that bad. I did feel a little bit of pain and to this minute I still feel some pain in that finger. I’m glad I’m not allergic to bee stings.

We spent the rest of the day qualifying on the SAW. I guess I’m going to be a SAW gunner now. My position is assistant squad leader/SAW gunner. I sure won’t mind this position in Iraq, as long as I don’t have to walk everywhere. The only fact that I don’t like is that the Humvee is a soft target. It’s not like being in a tank.
