Has anyone heard anything from Dead Sled?
I assume that since he hasn't been here in a while, he did get sent to Iraq.....?

04-27-03, 10:06 AM
Yes, I believe he did. I haven't heard anything from him. I was hoping to receive an email by now.. I hope all is cool...

Been thinkin bout Deadsled myself. This war bringin back some memories. I focus on local soldiers of 3ID (mech) at Ft Stewart. Ga. Try to quiet the ghosts from my time in Vietnam. Plenty of them still wanderin around.
