1) From: Sean Cary
I am in digest mode - bandwidth and time simply don't allow for the mail
volume of the list in the normal format!
Its been 125 during the day, 80's-90's at night.  I work in an AC'd space ,
I cannot imagine what other Marines "outside the wire" have to deal with on
patrol and in the fire bases.  Fallujah is the same as it was when I was
here in 05-06, dirty, dusty and hot but with a ton of Marines, Soldiers and
Sailors grinding out their work, most with a smile on their face.
Amazing bunch of folks and I never lack for pride in the folks that I have
the honor to work with.  It will not be for lack of trying if we pull out of
here with an L in the Win/Loss column.  I have to say from this point of
view we are past their 50 yard line and are gearing up for a score, it's all
smash mouth football from here to the goal line.  The Iraqis are finally
turning against AQI here in Anbar and have had enough of getting blown up
and intimidated - great to see!  We have become a model for the rest of the
country.
Offers in the past for coffee are now gladly accepted - this deployment I
have an audience that will appreciate any coffee sent here!  I have ordered
a French Press mug to make coffee and decant to my Dunkin Donuts look alike
cup (looks like DD takeout and gets many questions where I got the DD
coffee...).  I figure that is strong enough to take any abuse I dole out
here, I also have my Swiss Gold single cup I got from SM's last deployment
coming soon.  When my box arrives from my wife I can stop drinking Diet Coke
for my morning caffeine hit.  (I can't bring myself to drink anything from
the silver vats or the G6 coffee mess...)
Take care all, and thank you in advance - I may be slow to respond to any
e-mails.

You didn't mention, do you have at least a whirly grinder?  Guessing you
must but making sure...

I was wondering the same thing.
Let me send a big THANK YOU, Sean. I am sure you will be getting lots of
packages in the mail, knowing
the big hearts of everyone here. You certainly deserve it - and  more.

(who is def. not in 125 degree weather, with the dirt, the dust & everything
else you're going thru)
