Month 9 Day 5

Notebook Entry
Concept of Operations all day. Samir Fired. Communication problems.

Journal Entry
I spent the entire day working on the conops for the trip. What is really funny is that for all of the high speed communications gear that we have almost half of the numbers that you dial on a SIPR [Secret Internet] or DSN [military telephones] do not work. That is immensely frustrating when you are trying to coordinate billeting, repairs, fuel, across half of the country. The Major brought up a good point, it is unlikely that anyone else has conducted a convoy this long, going all the way from RC(SW) to kabul and back

Samir was officially fired today

I thought the word 'tank' on the back of this truck was somewhat wishful thinking.
