My Aunt leaves for Iraq today. She's like 40 something and with a supply unit, like the one that Lynch chick was in. She has one more year left till her pensions up. I asked her to get my a bottle of sand from the gulf and any other things she finds.

Anybody here have people in the service in the gulf?

I have a coupe of friends over there, one in the Air force and one in the marines. The marine was over there once earlier and came home for awhile and just went back last week I think.

Hell yeah I want sand. Know the guy in Sving Private Ryan that collects Dirt? It's kinda like that...

Since she is supply I doubt she could get my an AK or anything...

You obvioulsy haven't been in the military. The right supply folks could get you Queen Elizibeth's dentures if they could get a good trade.

Military maxim #1 - Make friends with the supply folks and the cooks -- either way your set!

Military maxim #2 - If you have to run away, make sure its in teh correct direction!

part of my plea bargin for a differed sentence in military..Which actually rocks because I was origonally planning on military before I was going to pilots training. I think a nice glass bottle with iraqi sand.

So I have a marine rep telling the court to give me a smaller sentence so I can head off to basic. If all is well then I will be in basic come next fall. A friend has a russian ak47 from the iraq iran conflict. My uncle was a ranger para jumper in iraq 1.

The Marines rock dude, I had a cousin who's an 0311. If you want any advice or tips before joining, feel free to pm me.

And MedicDVG, this ain't 'NAM, I bet the brass is really strict about who has what and who sends what home. A shiny AK47 hanging up in my room would be nice...
