Jake's Blog

As some of you know (or maybe you don't) I regularly read the blog of a United States Marine.
For the life of me I can't remember how I found him.
He posted quite often while deployed in Iraq.
Now he's headed off to Afghanistan as a Marine Sniper.
His blog mentions a list of supplies needed while deployed.
Seemed like an interesting request so I clicked the link expecting to find the usual list of things:
Beef jerky, diaper wipes, flea collars, salsa, chips, phone cards and things of that sort.
GUESS AGAIN! Look at the list of items needed! It's pretty much a foreign language to me.

Silly me. I thought the U.S. military actually provided our soldiers with the gear they need.

2 had this to say:

It's perfectly understandable language to me.
