    I have been up the Muqor district 2 times, the first time they mortared us while we were on site a the police station, I didnt get to complete my work there, so again today, I went back up to install some more equipment and finish up what I had left to do there. I got it all complete this time, and there was a report that the Taliban were seen in the area we would be driving back thru on the way back to the FOB.

    Well to make a long story short, we made it 1/2 way back, and the mortars again started dropping in and small arms fire, the US boys fired em up, killing one and injuring another one.

    I am beginning to believe those guys have something against me personally, because before they had no problems in that area until I went up there the first time, and they had none before I went back up there the second time. So it must be they just dont like me.......:smile2:
