I am soo freaking happy right now! I have left the country of Iraq behind! Sitting in another base in Kuwait waiting for my next flight.

Almost there. So close I can feel my dive gear already!

DDCN dives coming soon!

Glad you are on your way home firediver.

Hey, random question. Is the base in Kuwait permanent? Is there a proper hospital there? I am working with a soldier who needs a certain type of medical care while he is deployed.

Appreciate your help!

Have a safe trip back to the Motherland, & get that gear out of Storage & get it wet!
It has suffered almost as much as you have, you need to be reunited!(AND IT FEELS SO GOOD)
Welcome home & I look forward to meeting you & shaking your hand to say thanks at Oronogo (if I can make it same day as you) or another time be it The little O!! or a near by lake!!

LOL.
I have fond memories of McGuire AFB. I was there as an Academy candidate for my medical and physical aptitudes. I had already completed my medical at St. Alban's in Queens. (originally wanted to go Navy).

Oh, wait...This is about you :smiley36:.

Expect to hear you are home any time now, Friend.
