    i was at work in the command post there in 2003. that's the one thing i hate about being the military, being away from your family on holidays. i still wouldn't trade jobs for anything in the world though!

    Good thinking, can't believe this is 6 pages already. I guess us all of us old military types figured out how bad the chow was and got to smoking some good stuff!

    Case in point, we got hot chow once a week for awhile. It was camel meat and rice. I finally just settled for my MRE's as they were better.

    I really think I ate a lot of camel, but didn't really care after a good fistful of months of MREs!
