Been here almost 2 weeks. Spent some time in Kuwait, DAMN HOT!

Talked with NAF who lives in Kuwait. Going to hook up with him on my way home.

Not too bad here. Safe for the most part. I do have to travel so we'll see how that goes. Almost exclusively via fixed or rotary wing.

Not sure if I am saving for some mods or the 09 yet. I guess we'll see.

FYI- the Mallett's just sent a Black Pontiac Solstice with a boosted LS7 pushing 1018 rwhp to the United Emirates. If you have any friends "securing peace" in the area keep an eye out for it! It should be off the ship by now...

You rock! Hu-rah :usflag::patriot:

3 regiments, ft. benning (columbus, ga), ft. stewart (savannah, ga), and ft. lewis, Sea/tac, wa)... Not going with regiment, going with the 1-178 INF, 33 BCT, right now I'm the Scout Platoon Leader... shouldn't be too bad

Know which FOB yet? Not that you can really tell me. I maintain some of the COMMS systems the FOBs out east use.

Take care over there. I did 2 tours in Iraq in the Marines with 1/5 and the 6th Civil Affairs Group. Im sure there are some on here that can confirm this; there is nothing on this earth that will get your blood pumpin more than kicking down a door. Good times... Im out now. God speed and keep up the good work in the sandbox.

p.s. take a look at the changes the GI bill will take on in fall on 09. Post 9-11 veterans will get close to 3k a month with houseing allowances (in my area xtra 1k a month) for 36 months.

Hot is an understatement. We hit 54.5C and i had the AC on and the car was in motion....Thank you LUKE for the Rad...

Lookin forward to your return, make sure you put on sunscreen, the winds there can burn you good...

Please watch your six over there! Thank you very much for serving and making it possible for the rest of us to play with our Vs. Did you run into Ollie North last week when he was there interviewing troops for FOX?

Stay Safe,

John
