at the end of September. That means I have to leave at the end of July for extra training in Texas.

Does that suck or what? 6 more years of this crap and I'm done. No way I stay past 20.

Keep your head down, rifle up and come back home safely.

Thanks for the nice comments. I shouldn't say no football but there will be very little I get to see. When you go out on a convoys for 15 days at a time you will get no news at all.

It's going to suck.

Didn't you just get back not too long ago?

Iowanian

Tuck....I'll wager we, as 'the planet' can figure out a way to get you the games....maybe a couple of weeks behind...but I'll bet between the Torrent guys and those with digital recorders, someone can burn DVDs of the games and send them to you.

Like I said...get someone an address.

Masterful concept, Mr. Iowanian.

I get all the games sent to me. Usually by Wednesday or Thursday of the following week (if we play on Sunday).

I would be more than happy to forward them to you. They're on VHS, though.

Teach football to the Iraqis. It's the only way to convert them long term.

Best of luck to you.

Is that anywhere near Assramistan? ;)

The Oil Monkey is not my favorite person right now either. The military as a whole has been so diminished that there are not enough troops to do what the DoD wants done. They've already started sending personnel to Iraq for a year at a time like it's a remote assignment.

I'll be in country 6 months, actually gone from family for 8 and that's bad enough. A year in that hell hole would be devastating. By the time I get back the 07 draft will be 2 weeks away.

Probably Speicher or Kuwait. Really don't know yet.

I posted a simular thread in 2003 asking for help with games on VHS. I got numerous responses. Brock was a godsend, he sent preseason and regular season games. Turn around was about 2-3 weeks on most of them.

I guess this is a good opertunity to say thanks to Brock.
You will never know what those tapes meant to me and some of my buddies too.

nice i was on a task force doing the chem weapons search and was all over that toilet (Iraq). I bet those A-10's got some again ala the highway of death in '91.

I remember watching the A-10's come in and out of the airport there at tellil. We were mostly using the shithooks.
