Welcome Fidel24.... Hope ya dont mind, I split your response off to its own thread so you dont get lost under someone elses cattlecall.

its an honor to have one of our guys in uniform come to our site!!! I know we have Vets, but i think you may be the first visiting us from active duty.

And BTW....
"Home of the free.
Because of the Brave... "

Thank you for making things safer for my kids.

Welcome, Brother.

When you come home, no need to bring any of that Saudi Sand, we use water in the "water" Pan :!: :wink: :D

I'm sure the Uzbekis will end up regretting it in the long haul. If you make to Bagram before the middle of October send me a PM and we'll get together for a brew and a cigar.
