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.

That means they were there for both like myself i was present from 04 to 05.
Before the we took over Fallujah (all the fing 12 to 14 hours shift) thanks for going UA Thompson and leaving me with all the work for BN.
After Fallujah i got to clean up the city and look at the after effect of what rounds can do.
Who gives a F how many times you were there.....

Kuwait - Camp Ripper
Iraq OIF I - Safwan, Zubayr, Basrah, Nasariya, Diwaniya, Najil, Afak, Budayir, Al Kut, Diyala, all over Baghdad, and Hillah
I was an AAV operator with 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, Alpha Company, 2nd Platoon. We were attached to Kilo 3/4. A reporter actually wrote a book about it titled "McCoy's Marines - Darkside to Baghdad."
For the most part, I can't remember most of it. I remember losing some friends at Diyala, losing a friend during the huge sandstorm March 25th, getting shot at quite a bit, and driving an AAV while trying not to fall asleep. The details are just a blur, but I was lucky because I kept a journal. We floated back home, during which time we were debriefed about everywhere we went in Iraq. I wrote all the names of the cities down on the way home. While I was there though, it was "shoot the hell out of the city and move on to the next one."

You were relieved by 2/11. Oddly enough one of my Drill Instructors was in 2/11 and I saw him a few times while we were deployed.

Here's a picture I took after we engaged the 51st Republican Guard Armor Division during the invasion. This was on the way to Zubayr, if I remember correctly. We smoked a lot of sh*t that day.
This was an MTLB that tried to run. He didn't make it.

All over southern Iraq with 1st LAR and as far north as Tikrit when we were assigned to Task Force Tripoli. Also went as far west as the Saudi border to try to find smugglers toward the end of my tour. All this was in '03.

Did a pump to Ramadi in 08 but since there's been so many new deployment titles I can't remember what number combination they classified it as.
