It’s Christmas Eve.

It really doesn’t seem like Christmas here. Maybe it’s because the weather is not cold enough, but that’s a different story tonight. Maybe it’s because there aren’t too many Christmas lights around. Maybe it’s because we don’t hear that much Christmas music. It’s come all of a sudden and it’s already here, just about.

We did a mission this morning. It went pretty well. No problems. I didn’t have to shoot anyone. That’s always a good thing. Almost everything went smooth, except for or intercom headsets that we thought we fixed last night. For some reason they stopped working right before we left the camp. I hate when that shit happens. It worked right up until when we really needed it. That’s not the only problem we had today. We had a major problem in the afternoon.

I was taking an afternoon nap when T-Rex came in the room with the .50 cal. “We have to get everything out of the truck.” He said. “What? Why?” “Because it’s leaking power steering fluid everywhere” “Was it making any noises? How’s the control?” I asked. “It’s making some loud noises and I had to fill it up twice with fluid just to make it back.” Oh that’s just great, I thought. Now our vehicle is deadlined. That means that it is not operational and we cannot operate it in the condition it’s in until repairs are made. I liked that Hummer too. That sucks. And I thought we wouldn’t have any problems with the truck since our driver is a mechanic himself. But he said that the guys we took the truck from didn’t maintain it. That means that everything that could happen will happen to you guessed it, us. It looks like this may be the beginning of things to come.

One last thing, lets not forget the true meaning of Christmas. It’s not about the Christmas lights, or the music, or the weather. It’s about the birth of Christ. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and spends memorable moments with all their friends and family. God Bless everyone and God Bless America.
