I went back to NY after the screening of Restrepo with Sebastian, Tim, you and your other bud; Took the family to "the Half King"..had some lamb burgers and a great time. Let me know if you ever come this way.

We don't know each other; my son is currently serving in the Farah province, Afghanistan. If you ever want to come to Kennebunkport, ME and spend some quality time by the ocean, you are always welcome in our home....you're a courageous young man. I hope you can eventually put this behind you and find rewarding life here in the US.
You and soldiers like you are the reason why I joined the military. I'm an AD nurse currently stationed at Travis and there is nothing I enjoy better about my job than to take care of soldiers and Marines who have seen the worst of war. You guys deserve nothing but the absolute best treatment from anyone and everyone. Thank you for all that you have done for your country. I'm only one of many AD officers who would bend over backwards for guys like you. I hope all is well for you.
Hey man it's Blake Mincey. Don't know if you remember me but I was stationed with you at Fort Bragg after SOPC. I was watching the movie and was very surprised to see you at the beginning. I was like "that's fuckin' O'byrne!". I did a tour to Iraq in 06-07 and got out of the army in 09. Just thought I'd look you up to say hey and I hope things are going well for ya bud.
It's my job to keep your asses safe! Working with the Preds and Reapers can be fun...at times. It can also be extremely frustrating. They are well aware of our drones above, watching them. We're constantly trying to keep up whenever they change their TTPs. Whether we're doing overwatches, route scans or responding to TICs it pisses us off when we do see them and nothing is done just because they know and take advantage of our ROEs. Being in Intel is a job that can make you feel helpless in an instant and rewarded the next. It's guys like you risking your lives on the ground that we do our job for. So, thank you for doing what you do.
Sorry for the late reply, really late. Sitting and talking maybe the solution, but sometimes, they sit, talk and an argument breaks out and leading to war. well, it's kinda funny. If you were in charge, how would you do it?
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT TRYING TO CON YOU OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THIS IS JUST A QUESTION, YOU CAN CHOOSE WHETHER TO ANSWER OR NOT.
I liked both. They really showed the human sides of war compared to the news or politician's. I like how the book would alternate with the raw events and interviews with studies from the Army's point of view trying to understand soldiers.
I cannot even begin to write you something that hasn't already been said...My hats go off to every soldier. My son served in Iraq and I can't imagine what soldiers go through. Sebastian and Tim were brave as well. Thank you. Tami
Just wanted to say you, and your unit, are the best of the best, Prior service, and crossed over attending army OCS in the summer, i can only hope that my unit is filled with men such as yourself. Best of luck, and thank you.
Hi, I am your cousin Sharon. I'm sending another msg., my computer said the first one failed. i was on the phone w/ June, talking about the Fam. Reunion. Looking forward to meeting you. My mom and Aunt Ada were sisters. I am reading War now. I am so sorry about Tim Hetherington's death.
Im interested in sending a care package to Australian forces, as I live there and it would be a great honour to support troops, be it US or Australian and If you have any good contacts or suggestions on how to go about sending a package it would be much obliged, also, whats some good movies (dvds) to send as I have a bunch but am unsure whats useful
Again thanks, not just for this, but for everything you and every other serving soldier has done for the US and the world
