My brother just got out of the air force a few months ago. I have nothing but respect for you and the sacrifices you are making for us. Thanks and stay safe.



On a side note what to help you keep your mind busy what you plan on doing to the bonneville when you get back.

the mountain dew can is the biggest thing I want from over there. I had one saved but my rommie drank it before I could get it packed and by then of course they were out of MD. Just curious if they still sell those auto benchmades in the px

Default mail system on this camp

not real sure how the mail system on this little FOB works as far as sending boxes out...but I will be collecting some soda cans and what not...if I cant mail them from here I will just hold on to them untill I can send them out...anyone know what the rules are about mailing soda? is it ok? I brought a few back with me from iraq, if nothing else I will take some home in Oct when I get leave and send them out from there....anyone who wants anything let me know...I get the sodas and what not for free...and there are other items that are not too expensive I could pick up.....just pm me with a request and where I can send them....

PS....yes they sell the auto benchmade knives at some places here but not on this camp....I should have a few in my household goods in storage back home.....

as for the question as to what I plan to do to the car when I get home, I pm'd rogue about taking a trip to INTENSE when I get home...I guess it depends on how much I save while I am over here...but was told they will work with me to see that I get "the most bang for my buck" want cam, heads, performance package (the one that comes with headers)....transaxel up grade if I put enough cash into performance parts that the engine is pushing out enough power to warent it, still realy do not know...gotta see about the bank account.

The mark of a true hero. You want nothing for your service. Just knowing you are doing this for your country is enough for you. All of the men and women I've met from our military express the same sentiments, and I'm humbled by the attitude and respect you and all our armed forces have for this country. The title of hero is not to be thrown about lightly. To be a hero, the title must be earned. Your selfless acts of sacrifice and generosity have earned you that title. Like it or not, I think I can say we all respect you more than you may ever know. Allow us the indulgence of using the term hero and to offer our thanks. For many of us, there is little else we can offer.

If you want anything over there that we can send, just ask. It'* the least we can do for you for all your doing for us back here.
