The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

This is the first video I made in 2004 while attached to HMM-764 (Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron). It covers most of the first month of deployment, my first and longest time Kuwaiting. We were the first reserve CH-46 squadron to go into Iraq, and had to unpack our helicopters and make sure they were fully ready to fly, which took a good part of a month. Be careful, it might cause a teary eye or two.


No one could ever forget any of our military. You all are what makes this country!
What an awesome video and songs!!
Thankyou all!!!!

I won'r forget you, even though I'm from another country.

does it sound stupid if I say that your video made me want to hug each and every member of the squadron?

What a Great video showing us what you actually are going through without the spin of the media. More to come?

From an Army, Navy, Army Air Corps, Air Force, and U. S. Marine Family from the Civil War to The first Gulf War - Thanks for the video and your contribution that makes all Veterans proud of you and your unit. Not to worry, You will never ever be forgotten by my family and I. May God Bless and Keep you!

Thank you, be safe, and come home to us very soon.

Thank you, be safe, and come home to us very soon.
