Thank you for taking the time to look through them and comment on them. They definately brought back alot of memories. I hope that they will help some of you to better understand that we are not there to take over. I hope that some of you will understand that this is about more then just oil.

If you feel differently that is fine but please support our troops at the end of the day.

Thanks again for looking.
Thanks again for sharing, and for your service.

Are those Iraqi tanks any kin to Texas armadillos? They're all upside down.

Thanks!

There were alot of friendly people. I had my preconceived notions as I left the U.S. and headed over there. I would venture to say that almost every single close minded thought I had was shattered. Thankfully.

Those Suez Canal Pics looked familiar, I ran that ditch 6 times on the USS Saratoga back during the first go-round over there!

What exactly did you do over there again? I noticed a few pages back you said you rode a motorcycle over there. How about getting me one of those KLR650s?

I was with Task Force Tarawa. My unit was 8th Communications Battalion. Our unit is mainly known for The battle of An Nasiriyah and the rescue of U.S. Army Private Jessica Lynch.

I enlisted as a Network Administrator. Since I rode/raced Crotch Rockets and ATV's in my off time I was allowed to go through the combat courier school early on. While in Iraq I pulled duty as that as well as a Network Admin and a few other billets. I did everything from running radio wire to clearing buildings. Marines dont really have just one job. Thats what makes us so effective.

Those were great pictures. Thank you for taking the time to share with us. It is nice to see a different perspective then the one presented on the news.

You have a great talent for photography.

Thanks again for your service and the pix.

Does the government go thru your pics or anything? I would think that they would be worried about what gets out.

And thanks for the posts, a real eye opener for me

Delta,

you are correct in making that statement. Opsec is very important.
