    Well...Vicki sais that it is Okay, Here are some More. Almost a Story Line in Pics. Will explain as each one is loaded.

    This is a pic of a Brand New "Defac" (Dining Facility) that wasnt operational at the time the Pic was taken, In fact I had Left Country before it was up and Running.

    LOL! I wonder if these are operational Yet! LOL! This is the New Showers and Latrines. I asked the Worker how much longer? His reply was 2 weeks Mista. 6 Weeks Later, Well U tell me.

    Here is our PX and Phone Bank. Can you believe that there are 50 or so Phones in this Tent.

    Well...I will continue Later with more pics that I have. The Gist of these posts are kind of like a Time line of my time Spent in Iraq.
    Eventually, Thru these pictures you will see my travels thru the country and on into Kuwait. :) Again, I ask, Please Let me know if you like these.

    I would also like to Thank you folks for your gratitude to me, for my service in Iraq. So, If I dont reply, Let it be known here and now, That I truly apreciate hearing The Thank Yous. (Although not Needed, As I was doing "My Job for my Country)

    Interesting pics - I'd love to see more. BTW, I think the guys in the first pics were probably from Poland, Russia never had any troops in Iraq to my knowledge.

    Yes! Astinus! The Chronicler of Time and History :)
    I thought that was a Pretty good Series. Well the Chronicles. With Tanis, Sturm, Tasslehoff. But what Intrigued me Most is Astinus and Huma. Legends.
    Then of course there is Test of the Twins and Brothers Majere.
