desertdoc, myself, tricky89 and haze are all from the victory division. Yes I recall the beer tent and all that. Tricky and I were just talking about that the other day. The hangar at stewart, tent city. Stomped some same ground brother. Hope you are well. Tricky and I were recalling highway 8 the other afternoon on the phone. Fuel truck driver was throwing up. Had to "get a little guts on the tires" .

I liked it when I could trade our MRE's to the Brits for their field rations. Boy they had some good food. One day I asked them why they wanted ours since theirs was so much better. They said to feed the POWs when the time came.

They liked ours cuz our MRE's were different than theirs. We liked theirs cuz they were different than ours. Get sick of tuna with noodles after some months. The brits wanted to trade all kinds of stuff including trucks. I liked them. They were alright. Cool dudes

thing about them is they are wild! we had some attached to our task force (2/7) and once they started engaging they wouldn't stop! they told our task force commander to "just wait and watch......SIR"!!!

Just wish it was more centralized than Texas. We don't have the money or the time to get there. I would love to hear Dr. Haley speak on his GWI research.
