We fell under them somewhere up the chain of command. Didn't really have a lot of affect on us at the company level.

When ever we came across you guys we made a point of handing out foam ear plugs. We didn't want you to go deaf if one of those devices detonated on you!!

OEF/Op Medusa/Battle for Sperwan Ghar
Spent most of my time in the Zhari district in Kandahar which I am sure many 10th MTN and Marines are used to since 2007
Went to college after leaving the military to be a paramedic.
Looking to maybe do some contract work in Afghanistan or possibly join the reserves and take a break from civilian EMS and do some mentor work before we pull out in 2014.

Any contractors can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
