Happy to be included in this group of divers!

First of all, a million thanks to our founder, Kamala, for having the vision and fortitude to include this forum at SingleDivers. Political affiliations aside, I think that everyone can point to and thank a soldier, sailor, airman or marine for some way that has positively affected their life.

My personal reasons for volunteering to support Operation Iraqi Freedom.

1) Do everything I can to maintain and promote freedom of religion in this country and help the citizens in other countries to do the same.

2) Do everything I can to maintain and promote freedom of speech in this country and help the citizens in other countries to do the same.

3) Help out my Islamic cousins that have been oppressed by tyrannical regimes.

These reasons may not be important to you but they are to me. Your thoughts, prayers and emails are appreciated. I'll do my best to post real pictures from over in the "Big SandBox" time permitting so you'll be able to view first hand the good things that soldiers are so well known for. If you want to email me personally, one of my military email addresses is gungho.gijoe@us.army.mil . I'll reply as often as possible.

Moving on to lighter topics ... I am already missing my diving and can't wait to get back!

God Bless!

C'yathenandbyefornow,

As a former cold warrior, I agree with Kamala. Our Canadian cousins provide more support to US military efforts than one might think. I was diving with two members of the Candian army in Brockville (and Kingston the week before). The husband had been to Afganistan recently.

Let's see you all on some trips.

Oh! I know exactly who you're talking about! I've dived with them as well..... as a matter of fact, before I was certified, the male half was stationed in Afghanistan and the female half was (I dunno - lonely? worried?) feeling a bit under the weather so I took her snorkelling to a shallow wreck I knew of just south of Base. Water therapy, just what the doc ordered! :cool2:

And while we're at it, here's an (older) pic of me.......

Heehee thanks WW, someday I'll post an updated pic, if I can get someone to take one of me. I've actually lost a lot of weight since that shot was taken. For some odd reason I never have a camera around when I'm in uniform these days.

I'd love to meet you guys sometime...............I mean I've met Brian already on a charter (hi, Brian! :fish2: )

Great on the picture...you know how much we LOVE pictures around here! LOL!!!

But more importantly...thank you for serving in the military! All troops that fight together for our collective freedoms are #1 in my book! :cool2: :teeth:

Kamela,
I'll be halfway to the land of the camel when you get this post. Were stuck in Germany right now waiting for our aircraft to get all fueled up...plus we have to land at night. Jeez I'm board, but the USO people here were kind enough to provide computers for us to use. I can't wait to get back and do some diving, and Grenada sounds great! I'll keep you posted on the trip and will try to find you a mug! I think its great for you to offer free membership to all the active duty folks, but lets not forget the reserve and guard guys too. It seems like more and more of them are getting activated and deployed too.

And thanks to the rest of the board for your support of the military during these times. I can testify firsthand how great it is to have a complete stranger walk up to you and say "thanks" when you are tired and headed forward or back home. That little word really means a lot.

On the other hand beer is good too.... I'll see ya in the summer.
