SECURE THE BORDERS!

Guest blogger

I had the honor of serving with Turtle for the first time on the line in Campo and in Shangri La on 29DEC08. That report is located two posts below this one, entitled  The Red Army Report.  My extremely tardy Border Update for 28,29 and 30DEC08 is posted directly below this one.
 Turtle and Golf 1 returned to the line west of Campo this past weekend
.  The area is becoming extremely busy and Mexican Military (para military? Zeta?) has been present in the area in force.  This intel has been verified by several sources.  We hope that all patriotic civilians will come to the border as a show of force.  But be prepared. Be strong and be vigilant.

Below is Turtle's first report here as a guest blogger. The angry turtle photo was my idea.  Hope you don't mind, Turtle.
See y'all on the line real soon.
 Semper Vi,

"TALES FROM THE SHELL"
 
REPORT BY: TURTLE

LOCATION: DOUGHNUT HOLE
DATE: 10 JAN. THRU 11 JAN. 2009
TIME/SHIFT: 1500 hrs. TILL 0900 hrs.
WEATHER: CLEAR, COLD AND EXTREMELY WINDY
VISIBILITY: EXCELLENT AND BRIGHT AS SH#*!
PERSONNEL: TURTLE & GOLF-1

REPORT:
 
 1500 hrs. UPON ARRIVING TO DOUGHNUT HOLE, EVEN BEFORE GOLF-1 AND I HAD THE CHANCE TO
GEAR UP. GOLF-1 NOTICED MOVEMENT AT THE BASE OF HILL 241 ON THE ENEMY SIDE OF THE BORDER,
WHICH SET THE TONE FOR THE REST OF OUR SHIFT. WE QUICKLY GRABBED "EYES" AND SCANNED
THE PEMEX RD. FOR ANY VEHICLE MOVEMENT. NONE WAS SEEN. AS WE LOOKED AGAIN AT THE BASE
OF 241 WE PICKED UP AND FOLLOWED IA's (3) MOVING SOUTH ALONG THE
ROAD AND THEY HID OUT IN SOME BUSHES AND WE LOST SIGHT OF THEM AND NOTICED NO MOVEMENT
FROM THEM AT AL. THEY MUST HAVE WAITED TILL DARKNESS AND MOVED OUT WHILE OUR ATTENTION
WAS ELSEWHERE.
 
APROX 1530hrs. WE NOTICED HEAVY AMOUNTS OF TRAFFIC GOING TO AND FRO FROM THE RANCH
HOUSE BELOW THE DONUGHT HOLE. VERY LITTLE ACTIVITY OTHER THAN TRAFFIC FROM CARS AT
THE RANCH THE WHOLE SHIFT.
 
1645 hrs. FIRST DRIVE UP BY MR. GREEN TO CHECK US OUT. WE CONVERSED MR. GREEN AS TO
THE ACTIVITY WE OBSERVED UPON ARRIVAL. MR. GREEN THEN PROCEEDED TO ADVISE US ON
CURRENT EVENTS OF THE DAY BEFORE WE SHOWED UP. WE WERE INFORMED ABOUT A GROUP OF IA's
(4) CAUGHT EARLIER IN THE DAY. THEY WERE HUMPIN' WITH BACKPACKS ON FOREST GATE RD. THE
IA'S AND CARTEL MUST BE GETTING "DESPERATE" ACCORDING TO MR. GREEN'S INTEL GIVEN TO US,
FOR THE THE ENEMY TO BE THAT CARELESS. WE TOOK NOTE OF THIS AND INCREASED OUR OBSERVATION
EFFORTS. WE WERE ALSO TOLD ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF PRESSURE THAT HAS BEEN PUT ON IA's 
RECENTLY TO GET THEIR "GOODS" ACROSS THE FENCE AND THAT THEY MUST BE GETTING DESPERATE DUE
TO THE PRESSURE FROM OUR OTHER PATRIOTS ON THE LINE EAST OF OUR POSITION. GO TEAM!!!
WE WERE ALSO ADVISED TO BE AWARE OF TRAFFIC POSSIBLY PUSHING THRU THE BERMUDA
TRIANGLE THIS SHIFT. IT HAS BEEN BUSY ALL WEEK ACCORDING TO MR. GREEN. WE TOOK NOTE
AND CONTINUED OBSERVATION OF THE VALLEY INTENSELY.
 
APROX 2000 hrs. MR. GREEN ROLLED UP TO CHECK UP ON US AND WAS RUNNING A SURVEY WITH
THEIR F.L.I.R. BINOCULARS AND PROCEEDED TO INFORM US OF ENEMY HOT POINTS OF INSERTION
AND "PERMANENT" SPOT POINTS SPOTTERS ARE ALWAYS CAMPED AT. WE HAD NO CAMERA TO TAKE
PICTURES OF SPOTTING POSITIONS, BUT WILL POINT THEM OUT TO EVERYONE NEXT WEEKEND.
TO KEEP ALL PATRIOTS INFORMED ON THIS NEW INTEL. MR. GREEN IMPARTED UPON US. MR. GREEN
WISHED US HAPPY HUNTING AND LEFT OUR POSITION.
 
APROX 2030 hrs. SANTA ANA WINDS PICKED UP AND WAS FORCEFULLY MOVING GOLF-1 AND MYSELF
AROUND LIKE RAG DOLLS. THE MOON WAS SO FULL AND BRIGHT AT THIS TIME EVEN GEN-I
NVG'S COULD SEE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. AWESOME VEIW WAS HAD THE WHOLE EVENING.
 
APROX 2100 hrs. – 0000 hrs. MR. GREEN WAS COMBING THE BACKSIDE OF WHERE TANK TRAP 1,
COUCH TRAIL & PATRIOT POINT VERY INTENSELY LOOKING FOR IA's.
 
APROX 0030 hrs. I SPOTTED MOVEMENT ON OUR SIDE OF FENCE AND SAW ENEMY (1) CROSSING
ROAD TO TANK TRAP 1. ENEMY WAS MOVING VERY FAST AND VERY AWKWARDLY AS IF TRIPPING
OVER HIMSELF, TRYING INTENSELY NOT TO BE KISSING THE DIRT. GOLF-1 CALLED ACTIVITY TO
MR. GREEN AND WAS TOLD THAT UNITS WERE DISPATCHED TO LOOK FOR OTHER ACTIVITY IN THE
AREA. GOLF-1 AND I JUMPED IN MY TRUCK AND MOVED OUT TO INVESTIGATE TANK TRAP 1 LOOKING
FOR ANY CLUE TO ENEMY'S MOVEMENT OVER THE FENCE. NO MOVEMENT SPOTTED. ENEMY WAS MOVING
WITH A PURPOSE. DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF DRUG MOVEMENT IN THE AREA THIS WHOLE WEEK GOLF-1
AND MYSELF BECAME EVER CAUTIOUS FOR THE REST OF THE SHIFT.
 
APROX. 0100 hrs. – 0245 hrs. NOTHING OF INTEREST TO REPORT, NO TRAFFIC OR MOVEMENT EXCEPT
FOR MR. GREEN SWEEPING AND ROVING THE FENCE LINE. WE ALSO RECEIVED A DRIVE BY FROM MR. GREEN.
 
APROX 0300 hrs. GOLF-1 WAS FORWARD OBSERVING ON THE ROCKS DON THE DOUGHNUT AND SPOTTED
DUST TRAILS ROLLING HOT AND FAST ON THE RANCHITA RD. THEY WERE IDENTIFIED AS "HUMMERS"
WHICH WAS CONFIRMED BY MYSELF WERE ROLLING SO FAST THAT THE FRONT VEHICLES OVERSHOT THEIR
TURN. OBVIOUSLY FRUSTRATED, THEY STOPPED AND BACKED UP  ONLY TO BE SEEN GOING E-BOUND ON
THE PMEX RD. AND LOST SIGHT OF THEM. A FEW MIN. LATER WE SAW THEM ROLLIN' FAST THRU THE
TRAILS IN THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE AREA AND STOPPED APROX. 50 yds. FROM TANK TRAP-1. GOLF-1
AND I QUICKLY TOOK DEFENSIVE POSITIONS IN THE ROCKS. (8) RoM ARMY MEMBERS JUMPED OUT OF
VEHICLES AND TOOK DEFENSIVE POSITIONS IN FRONT AND AROUND THEIR VEHICLES. GOLF-1 AND I
WERE EXPECTING THE WORST FROM THIS DISPLAY OF PRESENCE. WE WERE BURIED IN THE ROCKS OF THE
DOUGHNUT WE WERE LIKE CHIGGERS DUG IN DEEP IN THE SKIN. THEY PROCEEDED TO SCAN OUR SIDE OF
THE FENCE AND LIT MY TRUCK UP QUICK AND HELD IT THERE FOR A BIT, THEN PROCEEDED ON A
EASTWARD SWEEP. I THEN SIGNALED MR. GREEN (TACTICAL LIGHT) WHOM WAS POSITIONED  JUST BEHIND
PATRIOT POINT AND PROCEEDED DRIVING UP TO THE TOP OF THE POINT AND WAS SPOTTED AS WELL.
LETS JUST SAY THE RoM ARMY WASN'T PLEASED WITH THE RETCHES CHARLIE BRAVO MANEUVER WE JUST
PREFORMED. THEIR WAS A LOT OF BOOT KICKING SOME YELLING AND BANGIN' OF VEHICLE HOODS.
WE LAUGHED OUR GUTS OUT FOR HOURS, WE SO PISSED IN THEIR CHEERIO BOWL AND THEY ATE IT!!!.
ONE FOR US AND ZERO FOR THEM…HAHA!
 
0345 hrs. MR. GREEN ROLLED BACK TO OUR POSITION AND TOLD US HIMSELF AND THE BOYS WERE VERY
PLEASED WITH OUR PERFORMANCE AND OUR PROFESSIONALISM IN THE RECENT EVENTS OF THE MORNING.
THEY SAID THAT THEY LOOKED FORWARD TO SEEING US AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE. wE INFORMED
MR. GREEN WE WOULD BE BACK NEXT FRI. AFTERNOON TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. MR. GREEN GAVE THE
THUMBS UP AND ROLLED OUT OFF THE DOUGHNUT HOLE. WE THEN PROCEEDED TO SCAN THE VALLEY.
 
0400 hrs. – 0900 hrs. NO OTHER ACTIVITY WAS OBSERVED THE REST OF THIS SHIFT. WE SAW
MR. GREEN ONCE MORE BEFORE ROLLING OUT AND TOLD THEM WE WERE OUT OF HERE THEY AGAIN GAVE
THANKS FOR OUR ROLE AND SUPPORT LAST NIGHT. WE RESPONDED IN KIND, "THAT'S HOW WE ROLL!"
AND PROCEEDED HOME.

AS A SIDE NOTE TO ALL READING THIS REPORT…
GOLF-1 AND MYSELF WERE THE ONLY PATRIOTS ON THE DOUGHNUT WATCHING PATRIOT POINT TO HILL 241
LAST NIGHT. MR. GREEN WAS IMPRESSED AND HAPPY WE WERE THERE TO LET THEM CONCENTRATE ON OTHER
AREAS ALONG THE FENCE. WE NOW OWN THAT AREA AND THE ENEMY HATES IT!!!!

END REPORT-
