Howdy from Iraq!

Hey there! Was reading some threads on your forum here and decided to sign up. I'm a native of Seguin, TX and a US Army truck driver currently "misplaced" somewhere in the sands of Iraq.



I've got an old M1009 ('84 k5 blazer) sitting in the driveway (in hawaii). Which I can't wait to get back to, along with the wife and kid, of course.

Heh, if I can smuggle one, it's mine. Maybe if I could get 2 I would hook ya up. Heh, could just try to buy one from the iraqi government, since they got a bunch of our old ones. :P They never auction the GOOD stuff in the US, they always sell it to other countries instead. :P

Cool. I will be in kuwait in about a week too, going home for (very late) R&R. Only two months left on our deployment, and I am one of the very last people to get my leave! Should make for an interesting return, only coming back for like 25ish days and then going home again.

Too bad you can't do the 30 days up front, then go home for good. Be careful and have fun.
