Baathist Bomb Maker Killed

Good news here. Though I don't really know anything about it. Hopefully this guy was important like the Engineer for the Palestinians and made alot of the bombs. So, this would hopefully bring down the deaths from bombs or car bombs.

Our relief should be here soon. The Iraqi Security Forces have pretty much taken over security of the compound. So, that frees up alot more of the guys to go out and do patrols and set up Observing posts looking for anything suspicious. It has been for the past 3 days since we have had a dust storm come through. I have finally got over my cold, lucky I was able to keep it from spreading. It is very bad when you're combat ineffective when you got a bunch of guys who are sick. Things seem to be getting alittle quiet lately. I've started to see Iraqis now going on mounted patrols with soldiers for the first time yesterday. I am sure this happens alot, but it is the first time I have noticed it. Not much else has been going on.
