Drifter has LEFT IRAQ

All,

After three days of cooling our jets, living 60 Marines to a giant tent, eating too much, and getting in a little PT, we FINALLY lifted early this morning via C-130 to Kuwait.

We are now in Kuwait, and will shortly begin the next step of what we Marines call the Seabag Drag, and start staging to leave here.

I will post MUCH more once I get back there to Lejeune, but for now, all is well and the REALLY hard part is over. We are inbound.
