    I'm TDY to Kuwait for a week on a PDSS/LDR's Recon for one of our training units. Don't know how much computer access I'll have whilie I'm there, but hopefully, I'll be able to post some pics. If not, I'll do it when I get back. Until then, Ciao.

    Your message brings back memories. My Mom used to say "Speak English not Army!" .

    Be safe, hope the heat isn't unbearable. Let us hear from you when you get a chance.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts, all, but Kuwait is about 100X safer than Iraq, or Newark, NJ, for that matter. My biggest risk is nodding off in a briefing from the jetlag. I got in last night and I'm typing from the air-conditioned splendor of the Arifjan PX/library computer room. It is really hot, though. I was told that it was 120 degrees today, but because it's so dry, it only feels like 119. Tomorrow I head up north to a couple of the other camps, then back down here and then home. If this trip were any shorter, it would have been completely useless. As it is, we have just enough time to get our RFIs answered and make the return flight.

    Ciao all.

    Been there, done that.

    Have fun bud.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
