I'll tell my buddy about it, he ran a m88 tank retriver during Nam, so he might be up for a quick tour of duty. he has all the pics from the tour he did, lots of heavy stuff.
my self I could do it , just not up for the dayly highlights of getting my head blown off.

Tell you the truth i feel you should get recognized same as military personal for doing any of the civi jobs over there at this point . its still a full blown war zone . If i was to pick up military rights such as medical care for ever more id be very tempted .
