Hello from Iraq,
The possibility of diving in the on-base pool over here would be the only way to maintain ones sanity but due to the over abundance of male testosterone I'd advise against it.
Enough about diving opportunities. Just wanted to say hello from another hell and let you know we are kicking butt over here. We are flying jets 24/7, dropping some precision guided bombs every chance we can get. Still I'd much rather be back in the good old USA.
I'd enjoy some email traffic from anyone and if any of the dive angels would volunteer a photo so I can post on the bulletin board for my troops please consider it. Hey, guys too cause I have a few female crew chiefs and weapons loaders.. equality...
Here's my email addy over here: jimmy.roberts@centaf.af.mil
I will send photos of our stuff over here in return. Such as the jets, bombs, mission related things and my guys and girls at work.
I know this may not be the correct forum but move it whereever ya want.
And Kamala, I miss you babe...

Hey, you guys flying some MN jets? My old unit just got back, and I think they rainbowed with you guys and Fort Smith, but I am not positive.

then I'm amazed every day that the sun decides to rise
every minute, every hour, is another chance to change
life is beautiful & terrible & strange.

That's correct, three Guard units rainbow'ed here, Duluth first, Ft. Smith second, and now Houston...
Finally got rid of the sand storm, so nothing is blocking the sun, so it's back up to 140degrees in the shade mid-day...sucks.

Hi to all and get wet for me
