My squad A(2-3) was holding the fucking Embassy for 7.5 hours straight from something like 10pm-5:30am (And then again from 7am-mortar strike at 11.20). We used rest cycles, and I picked up a whole 40 minutes of sleep which gave me the energy for my second and third wind. I "hit the wall" at 1:30ish sunday (today), while siting on my unmade bunk. I fell asleep sitting up and missed the whole AAR. I woke up in time for the free shit though.
It was awesome to meet blackhawkranger, Zzan, tankleader, Ogre and countless more. It was definitely an experience I won't soon forget. Especially the whole Tan CO screwing all of us in the Embassy thing :/. We would have won by a landslide if that hadn't happened. (-500 from bravo for the boxes, +250 for Alpha for occupying the building). Unfortunately, there's nothing that can be done except to kick Bravo's ass next year.
Given the chance and the time off work, I will most definitely be attending this event next year.
I was awake the whole 24 and passed out in the truck on the way home! I had to cut out early as well because of some personal stuff the wife had to take care of but man was I beat when I hit Grand Rapids! I slept until 8 and have been awake every since. I will probably check it out next year as well. Pretty big A.O. For sure. Wasn't as taxing as I was led to believe but that was ok. The night vision was definitely a good thing to have. It was cool stalking shit in the dark.
I have a couple vidios I wi try to get up on YouTube once I get some edited.
Good playing along side some cool people from Michigan again.
