Hello from sunny, sandy Kuwait!!!
Things are starting to wrapup around here and I got a little time in a spot where I have some internet access. After emailing every friend and family member I could think of I decided to stop by here and take a look at the fly's. Maybe it's just the dessert, but they all look great! Fly fishing gave me something to close my eye's and think about at night to relax, I think I replayed fishing the head of the Buskin River in Kodiak 1000 times. I can't wait to get back to New Orleans (my current station) and head down to the salt! Your site is great! Thank you!

It's great to hear from you. I'm glad that you'll be heading back this way in due time.....you're overdue for some fishing! :D
Best to you and your fellow mates and the work that you are doing. It's appreciated.

Glad you could access the board; just another example of the internet being where ever you are.

great to hear from you.
have a safe trip back.
and i can guarantee you those flies look a whole lot better in the water...or better yet being swallowed...than they do in the desert. something to look forward to!

Thanks for all the replys!!! The support we've gotten from the home front has been amazing, it's nice to know we're supported. I won't be doing any traveling anytime soon, still about 3-4 months to do in country. By that time it should be cooled down a little in the south and the bugs shouldn't be so bad (;) Thinking positive).

Thank You so much for everything you guys have done and are doing!
Glad you are OK, and thanks for the swell job you did. Now, time for R&R - the kind where you get some GREAT fishing, some cool, frosty brews, feminine companionship, and good food, showers and a soft bed - and NOT necessarily in that order! :rolleyes:
The best to you and your buddies!

Hope you guys know how much everyone back here thinks of themselves as being in your debt for the dangerous work you're doing. Stay safe!
Just adding my "Thanks" and appreciation for what you guys are doing and have done. We are all very proud of you and the rest of the military. A finer, more professional bunch of soldiers, sailors, pilots and marines there have never been.
In a small measure of appreciation, if you get to New England, I'll take you out for some Striper fishing, and I am sure there would be lots of others volunteering to do the same.

Just chiming in with great wishes for a safe return and to express my thanks for putting yourself in harms way to protect us!
Thanks (somehow doesn't seem enough).

I made it back to the states!!!
I've taken 30 day's worth of leave and am visiting family and friends in the Va Beach area and getting ready to head upto the Eastern Panhandle of WV. I hope to get some fishing in in WV, my wife brought my favorite rod up with her when she met me in Norfolk. I'm going to visit some favorite old ponds and take a trip to the Smoke Hole section of the South Branch of the Potomac (where I caught my first trout on a fly rob).
Thanks for all the messages and It's great to be back!!!!!!
