    Other than that I just remember getting shot at sometimes, going through towns where like 5 yearolds would try to bum ciggs off of me, and IEDs in Ramadi.....for the most part though....unless I'm talking to another combat veteran....I usually dont like to talk about it....


    Oh and to answer your question 2ndCEBSupply the reason the food was better in Iraq than at Camp Lejeune was because we werent at Camp Lejeune lol.

    That only states the obvious LOL. I feel you on the i dont like to talk about it part, i dont like to be someones amusment for a good story.

    OIF 1- All over southern Iraq with an MST. Made as far north as Al-Kut.

    OIF 2- FOB Kalsu with the 24th MEU. Operated in Mussayib, Iskandayriah, Latifyiah, Yusifiah, Mahmudiah, Hilla, Fallujah and a bunch of other villages in the North Babil AO.

    The Marines I served with were amongst the finest in the world and I wouldn't trade my time next to them for anything.

    OIF I & II were simple enough-when did the numbering system break down and what does it all mean? my understanding is if you can't write your tour in Roman Numerals, you missed it... (I had the honor of setting the conditions for a free Iraq in OIF's 05-07.1 and 06-08.something.)

    I always thought it was like this
    03 OIF I
    04 OIF II
    05 OIF III
    06 OIF IV
    07 OIF V
    08 OIF VI

    have I been wrong this whole time?

    Yeah, that's what I thought 'til I went, and came back with those funky op designators. 05-07 and 06-08. Those would seem to overlap but were 14 mo. apart...

    Hmmmm now I'm confused cause I've seen guys on here who I know for a fact are Marines and have only served one tour and they'll say they were in OIF IV or OIF V.......hmmmm weird.

    They refer to it as that, but that is not the official designation. Don't know what to tell you. It is in my SRB and citations in that way.
