Then you already voted. Your limited to a single vote.
sheesh.... I don't remember this poll, and I thought I was AWOL from here since June, anyway. (sigh) Well, if the bandwidth Gods say I already voted, I just hope I did so appropriately and none of that Oldies crap.

Well Dagger did ask if the insurgants were after you and I know that Perot is from TX as well and I seem to remember that he said that terrorists were always trying to kidnap him from his home in TX..... :roll:

I don't remember. But I got a kick out of those Arabic stations trying to find AFRN. A lot of wailing and weird music.
After we made our move to our logistics site the morning of the Jan 17, 1991 (north of Tapline road, east of Rafha) we had no AFRN for a number of days. AM/FM radios could only pick up Arabic speaking stations. We had only one short wave radio in our unit, we could get the BBC International clearly. All news, but it was better than nothing.

Hell no, in fact I saw them open for Motley Crue back in 86 and when Motley finished their set, the crowd roared and chnted for G&R to come back on, of course they didnt. I just did not happen to have any G&R with me.

AC/DC, ZZ top, Guns and Roses, A couple Ozzy tapes and some mixed country tapes. We did a lot of tape trading with other units just to have some variety. But the ones listed above were the ones I didn't trade.
