Excellent dude! I just read in Armchair General that Gen. Petraeus is being moved to CENTCOM Commander now, I think his Chief of Staff is taking over his old spot. Regardless from whats happened they sound like the right guys for the jobs.

Dude you look dog-assed tired in that first pic. And I agree, the best gifts are from friends. Glad to see you have some good friends over there bud. :AH

To me the pics of those smiling kids makes us being there worth it. Very nice pic.

Well my high and tight version was more akin to a mowhawk, and that is a big NO-NO in the army regs... Had I tapered the sides, than I would have been all clear. Oh, well it was fun while it lasted :D

But something to remember. Oh, well another day.

I figured it was either a High and Tight or a Mohawk. But did not think you would go Mohawk since I had thought it would be against regs. :bs Guess I was wrong. :bs

I found some really deep ruts in some really soft mud, and almost missed 'em. not 100% sure what happened after that, but the bike stopped and i didnt. Thats why i like riding in the mud - it doesnt hurt as much when you hit the deck.


can't half tell i like blue.

Now I may have to get resized, due my extra pounds of muscle and some baby fat. I am growing, but at least in a somewhat health manner.

Lol, I heard that. By the time I reached my third year, I could not even get on the uniforms I was issued in boot as a snot-nosed 17 year old runt. :bs
