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 a great video that was shared with me by a Soldiers’ Angel. It gives the American public great insight into what our Soldiers and Marines have to carry downrange. It has some vulgar language in it, because -- well, that is the way many Soldiers and Marines talk when not near civilization. So don’t take it personal.


And I thought my wallet was getting full...

A true warrior. America's finest. God Bless Leatherneck.

No wonder my son came home on leave 30 pounds lighter. And pumped-up with muscles like Popeye!
Language? What language? Sounds normal to me...these are soldiers, not ballet dancers!

Loved this video. Informative, nicely presented. Great! I just loved it!
Can't imagine eating nothing but MREs and Cliff bars for a week, let alone not sleeping in my own warm bed at night.
Thank You. Come home soon. We miss you.
