Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this, I'm currently on assignment overseas which will prevent me from participating in many aspects of this forum. However, I will commit to expressing my appreciation for those who have and are still picking the same sand from our teeth. I do have a great concern for the overall combat preparedness of our troops during operations, and the efforts of top brass and Remf’s have displayed to correct this. I guess it’s time I jumped off this soap box for now, and thank the administration for accepting my membership. –Tip of the Spear.
