winter

Memories of a night patrol on MSR Uranium:
December 2004

cold and wet
but it's the cold
i remember
another time
another place
the cold
creepin into
my hands
my feet
my bones
the rounds
fumble
between my fingers
warmth seemed
so long ago
a distant
memory

the wind whipped
past me
thru me
into my soul
moonlit night
my eyes
strained
peered
never peircing
the darkness

fighting
sleep
boredom
monotony
cold
but seldom
the "enemy"

Brings back memories of guarding a 20' mountain of MREs in the middle of the night in a Korean late winter. That wind can get fierce brrrrrr

fierce when you're i the back of a highback driving down the road at 30 plus mph in 20-30 degree temps. the wind chill drops it down to neg 30....oh what fun for 12hours 4 to 6 days straight.
