Thursday Ft. Hughes

Not much to talk about today. We did fire a few more rounds today and had a load of bombs dropped on us and underwent a little shelling. The dirt and dust continue to whistle and swirl around our heads. Phew!

Everytime we shoot or the Jeeps shat we are covered with dust and go into our spasms of coughing. Tonight I went and got myself a bucket of water, washed my face and shaved again, Such luxury!! What a helluva life!
