    Well hopefully he will stay safe and hopefully this war ends soon.

    Sir-

    We here are THR pray that GOD will keep your grandson and the rest of our
    American fight'in forces safe, and out of harms way. Those assignments are
    difficult tasks at best, but I'm quite sure he is up to it; because he has
    received some of the best training todays military has to offer~! Many
    thanks for his service to our great country; and

    MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA~!

    I pray that he'll return to you with all of his original parts. My son "finished" his tour at Brooke Medical Center.

    Please accept a "Semper Fi!" from a Marine Dad, 1 Each.

    Moderators..I've been told by a poster the photos I put up should not be on the net. If so, would you remove them..I'm not sure how to do that.

    Thanks!

    tell him even some of the hippie freaks out here in Berkeley say Thanks also.
    what's wrong with those pics?
    the military most likely wouldn't let him take them if they weren't allowed to be seen.
    (unless you are by mistake revealing secrets which seems unlikely given the content, airbases that big are pretty well known to the world. there could be an issue of the soldiers privacy depending on govt regs, but as they are all un id able, that also seems unlikely)

    prayers for def4pos8 and family also.

    I was there in 04-05 with the Army. I'm 100% disabled now, but my squad went back 7 months ago. I send them a package every month. Some things they liked was CAA mag couplers, A.G.Russell tweezers, Magpul self leveling followers, Shemaughs, and Dillon Aero calenders. I also included several skin mags and a bottle of whiskey with every box. Just label the bottle as aftershave on the customs form. Before everyone says you can't send alcohol over there, you can, your just not supposed to.:)
