    He IM'd me at 3:05 am my time (11:05 his time) and said he was going to call me . 10 seconds later he was on the phone. He's with the 1-61st Cav, 4th Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) in the Baghdad sector of Iraq. THAT WAS AWESOME. He's been deployed since mid November. He is on a 12 to 18 month deployment. I just can't believe he called from Iraq! I just can't explain how I feel!

    :cool:

    practice OPSEC (operation security) and not volunteer sensitive info concerning him or his unit to an open internet forum.

    When I first got to Iraq making a call home was next to impossible. When I left Iraq in Jul 04, most Soldiers had cell phone.
