We went out today to find some items security forces found on their patrols. We ended up driving all over like some sort of demented easter egg hunt. We finally found something at one of the 7 points we checked. Anyway, in the process of looking around we got some good off road action in our HMMWV's. I just thought I'd share a few.

I'm at Ali (formerly Tallil). I should be getting back sometime around early October. I'm definately gonna want to go out and beat on the Jeep a little when I get back.

Not too sure about the spraypainted HAS. If you know what part of the flightline it is on I can see if I can find it and take some pics.

For anyone who cares here's what we found. There are about 750 25mm HEI-T (High Explosive Incendiary with Tracer) rounds in that picture. It took 30 blocks of C4 to get rid of that, which was all we brought with us. We loaded up just as many in ammo cans and brought them back to base with us.

Josh and Lehi and everyone else over there-

Thanks for putting it all on the line. Brings back old memories of a different time and place (Nam- '66-'69). I know how much this is costing you all.

Be safe

To me Dawg you guys are the real heros'. At least now we have the support of people like you. If it wasn't for you "old timers" we wouldn't be around right now.
Thanks :beer: :beer:
