    I know there are a few of us out there. I don't usually post things like this, but I was hoping if you were interested to post your branch/ years of service/ country/ unit. I know some of you might not want to and that is fine. I'm using this as a way to meet and greet other fellow forum members, and maybe share a few memories. So here it goes. Like I said, no offense or deception is being made. If you want to share that is fine, but if not let this thread die out in time.

    Thanks for posting guys. It is really a nice thing to see that were not alone out there. Here's a picture from around BIAP during my last tour. I figured the Mid westerners on here would appreciate this one.
