Since Jesse has a new address and a new location, I wanted to tell you all about it! If you look up his location (which is right after the "FOB" in his address, it is an actual city) you can see where it is on a map. He is going to be a platoon leader of a MGS, or a Multiple Gun System platoon. It is an armor platoon (they are tankers), not an infantry platoon. There are eleven soldiers in his platoon, not like the thirty plus he would be overseeing if he was in an infantry platoon. It seems as though he has been getting along with the company commander and his platoon sergeant. He hopes that he will be getting leave which he might get as long as they don't move him again. We will have to wait that out and see though.
The highways that they travel seem to be safer than other roads that some stryker units travel on because they are overseen by the Afghan militia. Where he is at he does have good access to a PX and can get most of the supplies that he needs.
I know in his care packages he doesn't want to have a lot of junk food, and he doesn't normally like too much of one thing. If you have any questions of things to send him, please let me know!
