    I guess it's true what my great-grandpa told me from when he was in the Marines (WWI) - They just use the same mud over and over again for each war Take it easy over there and stay safe!

    Keep safe brother, and tell everyone there we appreciate what you guy(gals) are doing for us, and thank God you stepped forward to carry the load for all of us, like soldiers and sailors have always done for our great Country. Keep your head down, powder dry, and bring some order to the Empire, and come home safely.

    Re: Hello from Sunny Baghdad

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Believe it or not, I've been in worse places (if you take away the people trying to kill me).

    But honestly, I really do appreciate everyone wishing me well.
    I don't think I'll make D*C this year, but I'm DEFINATELY gonna hit D*C 08.

    Re: The Official Jango Wes Iraq Updtate Thread

    Hey everyone. Since Wes hasn't posted an update in a while, thought I would. He's doing well. I get to talk to him about once or twice a week if we're lucky, but I usually get an email from him almost every day. Tried to upload a pic, but couldn't find the right image hosting site.

    Try www.imageshack.us that is what I usually use.
    Anyhoo, I have a metric butt ton of pics I will be sending to ya on a thumbdrive since the service is so slow here.
    Things are going well over here. We started missions the other night and I am working 18-20 hour days. Right now I am at the infantry unit HQ and they have internet access.

    Oh yeah, I was selected for promotion to E-7/Sergeant First Class!

    Good to see you on the boards baby.

    Wes

    Re: The Official Jango Wes Iraq Updtate Thread

    Yeah, everything is going good. We've started missions and we have been extremely successful. I wish I could say more about it, that's all I'm allowed to.
    I generally work 18-20 hour days, but I was blessed with a 27 hour day on Monday. The days do seem to bleed together over here, but you get used to it I guess.
    I get pinned on Monday, so I'm really looking forward to that. Brandy will have a lot of pics to post once I get a chance to mail off the picture disc.
    Now, if I could only get FettPride to answer my PMs.............

    What! According to the Congress and news media, you guys are failing miserably!

    Seriously, it's great to hear from you and congratulations on your promotion!

    Wes
    I think it's cause he takes all those side trips to the middle east to build real armor for the U.S. special operations groups operating near where you are Wes, in between building plastic armor for us mere mortals.

    That's my theory.

    Wes! What's up bud. Watch out for those Sarlaac's out there....but if you do find one, be sure to check inside for some really nice armor.

    Re: The Official Jango Wes Iraq Updtate Thread

    Hey,

    Just wanted to give a quick update. We finally got a new internet cafe so we have highspeed internet now. I can also upload some pics.
    This is me at one of Saddam's old palaces. I saw this window and thought: "DEATH STAR!"


    This is the "Mother of all Mosques". Supposedly, it was going to be bigger than the one at Mecca, which is a no-no.



    Here's me and my LT at my promotion.



    I have a metric butt-ton of pics, but that's all for now. I'm still alive, kicking and fighting the good fight. Can't really say what I do, but I can say my team is very successful at finding bad guys so the infantry can catch 'em. Or kill 'em if they put up a fight.

    Later guys and gals
    Wes
