A New Marine E-Mail from Iraq

This is from Marine Captain Dave Bellon:

Dad -

Right now we are finishing our rotation of units out of the area with
new ones arriving and taking over. We were concerned about a spike in
enemy activity as they knew we were rotating troops. Because of this we
conducted a couple of operations on the front end of the rotation and put a
hurting on them. Another unit here that operates with us also pulled a
couple of operations at about the same time. The result is that we put the
enemy back on its heels for a couple of weeks and got some breathing room.
Unfortunately, if these guys are true to form, things will pick up again very
