Hello this is Matt.
I am writing from FOB (foward operating base) Marez. I am safe and ok. I have been very busy and working hard. Today i got the day off so i was going to write a quick note. Thank you everyone that has sent me something or a package or letter, it means the world to me. I am having the time of my life here. On my off time i have been doing everything i can to stay in contact back home but have found it hard to because the internet is slow or the phones are busy. We hear 50 cals. going off all the time and we hear explosions going off about once a day. Lucky we haven't been hit yet.
Well sorry that this is short but I will try to write more next time
