    Again, thanks for all the kind words. We are about 90 days out from coming home, so we are on the downslide now. It's hard to believe I've been gone over a year. How the time flies. Here's a couple of pics.

    I have one question that's been bugging me off and on. As my unit was leaving back in November (TF 1-18 ), I noticed a lot of the FOB renovation efforts were almost done. So, my question is: Just how WELL have said efforts/tax dollars worked during the rainy season? *lol* I have very un-fond memories of the rainy season/clay like mud when I was there.

    Glad to hear you're still doin' good. Come back safe.

    Oh god, the clay mud.... you sink in it to your knees, and it sticks to you worse than glue, and adds a good 20-30 pounds to your legs and boots. Been there, done that, my friend. Western Iraq got a pretty good flood early '06 while I was there. I drove through a water puddle in my hummer with water up to the top of the hood. :-D

    Hey Wes...I know your neighborhood, including Super Mosque, very well The parking lot your standing in is also very familiar to me but in the early days of the conflict the only Subway and Burger King we had was at BIAP. I was part of (then) Prime Minister Alawis Security and I lived in the ICC/Al Rasheed. Ive also got a pic of me at falcon in almost the same spot you are standing in only facing the opposite direction. We controlled all the major checkpoints in to the Green Zone. Right after we left it sounds like the ICC and Al Rasheed were turned over to Iraqis (and Georgians) and teh boundaries of the GZ were pulled back. We used to get mortared daily. 24 hours after we cleared out of our QRF 'shack' (Saddams old helipad) two Kitusa rockets took it out. Timing is everything.
    Anyway, shukran habibi, and come home safe...Ive decided I like it better here in teh world...lol
