Month 12 Day 6

Notebook Entry
8 reports given, Munir on duty, request for information, Salim drivers.

Journal Enty
In the morning I went to check with Munir on the classes we were supposed to have that day.  He said that we'd be good to go for a class at 1000. He failed to mention that he had duty and that was not good to go. 

I got a call from Maj James Blitz, he called the ANA COC and wanted to talk to me.  He said that there was something wrong with our phones so he had to call the ANA COC, he said this not realizing that we just have a CAT5 cable running under the road and that all of the phones are hooked into the same server.  Anyway, he got an RFI from 1st Bde that he couldn't make sense of and wanted some more info.  I tried to work with Munir on it and quickly figured out why Maj James Blitz couldn't make sense of it.  Munir has no idea what he wanted.  He asked for a 1:23,000 (a map scale that didn't exist) and didn't specify the places he wanted the map to cover.  I went through the RFI form with him.  first he wanted ten wall maps, then a soft copy for his computer, then he wanted a map of northern Marjeh, then one of Marjeh proper, then one of the enemy's routes.  The simple is hard.  You are not going to get what you want if you don't know what you want. 

The GySgt Exlos came and worked with Qais.  HE couldn't work with Salim because he was at the drivers course.  HE knows how to drive, he just wants the certificate.
