Sorry about not writing on Father's Day; it was rather a sad day for us here. The bad guys finally succeeded and actually hit a truck in the company. So now one of my buddies is back home starting the reconstructive surgery process, the other was not so lucky, but lived. We have been regrouping since then, trying to move on. We will be getting some revenge very soon as we take on an entire village they are supposed to be living in. Other than that things are going by slowly but steadily. I will try to write when I can in the future; we are supposed to try and get Internet in our new rooms.
