This kind of stuff is the mission of my detachment. From what I’ve read of the news reports it sounds like the forces in place in Basra were successful in defending the port. I see that oil was flowing again from the port facilities hours after the attack. The news reports state that the dhow boats were intercepted and as a result of those interceptions were not able to get close to any of the high value assets (HVAs) in the area. Successful execution of their mission. BZ guys, BZ. Two sailors committed to Davey Jones in the action. To the friends and family of those sailors, my condolences.
We had another sand/dust storm last night. Another mild one I guess. Wind blew pretty hard last night. This morning when I woke up it was quiet and still.
Desert weather is interesting.
