CAPT V's deployment to Iraq travel blog




I got delayed by a day. Pls pray for those I leave behind.

Had an emotional and gut wrenching experience flying from BIAP to Kuwait. We landed at Kuwait international en route to Ali Al-Salem. Caskets of two fallen soldiers were transferred from our plane to a waiting truck. We all rendrered honors as the caskets were transferred. It was painful and saddening to watch the caskets being moved. Five of our soldiers were killed a couple of days ago at FOB Loyalty in Baghdad by rocket attacks.
