    Good luck. Here are MY PERSONAL rules of engagement for you while you are in the big sandbox....

    1. Keep your head on a swivel and always check your six.
    2. Look out for the guys on your immediate right and left.
    3. Pray that they do the same.
    4. When in a populated area remain totally alert, totally polite, and totally prepared to kill every person you see.
    5. When shooting at a bad guy, move after firing, they will shoot back at the spot you just vacated.
    6. Last but not least, irregardless of what the brass says, there is no such thing as too much ammo.
    7. If given the option of carrying more rations or ammo...take the ammo every time.

    This former Naval Officer extends the best wishes and issues a sharp hand salute to you as you go in harm's way. Take care and keep your eyes open and your head low.

    You are on our prayer list, Brother.

    May God hold you in His hand throughout your tour.

    All the above is good advice. Be sharp and stay safe.

    DCON...when he gets there and gets his .mil email address, ask him if it's okay to post it here so we can all harass him and let him know that he's missed, and in our thoughts and prayers.
