Just wanted to check in with ya'll. Just got back a little while ago from mission, and again things went very well. Here are some more pictures. Just so ya all know, it's not all fun and games out here, but all the really cool pictures aren't going to be posted...maybe after I get back.... either way, enjoy, and hope everyone is doing well. BTW, thanks for all the well wishes off my last post. It means alot to us out here. Ciao!

Here is a picture of one of the ONLY girls we've seen here, and she's the only child, boy or girl who's smiled since I've been out here. By the time they're 6, they are expected to do all the work around the house. Too much work for a kid.

Our team after 14 days and only having a field shower. A member of the ANA, (Afghan National Army), is standing behind us. We call him Three Shits....because that is all he knows to say.

There I am trying to escape the mid-day sun, which can reach 115 deg. Not as hot as Iraq, but pretty bad all the same.

Sunrise in the Himalayas. By the time the sun got here, it would already be in the mid 90's...


OK...I've edited once, and the pictures aren't coming up for me...if they are, then great, but if not let me know. I'll try and fix it when the internet is working a bit faster.

I know many of his relatives...most of the players at the PH have that limitation of familiar billiard terms and nothing more. ;-) sid
