Military Roundup

I love jet noise... Military Appreciation Day at Andrews AFB.

Weapons Co., 3/24 finds and destroys large stockpiles of conventional weapons near Camp Taqaddum, Iraq.

Get out the hankies - you'll need 'em.

Something you don't think of in a desert nation. Small Craft Company keeps the rivers open for transport for 1 MEF.

Thanks for JarheadDad for the preceding links.

What goes on behind the scenes - international cooperation at work.

Marines pass out school supplies in Kharma, Iraq.

From MarineCorpsMoms, more news from the front, nice photo essay.

I LOVED Col Tuckers comment on the MarineCorpMoms page: "Read today that the New York Times has decided we've lost the war. Amazing to me how so much intelligence can contain so little intellect." hehehehe
and boy did he handily bust the chops of that
"Iraqi wedding incident" FARCE!

I like the idea of every day being Military Appreciation Day, with no vacations from it, including the days of the well worn OUT Abu Ghraib "media darling"!!

Hi. I'm doing an really really big research paper on jet noise. I need to interview someone and I was wondering if anyone knew who I could contact about it. It's just a simple interview over the internet, shouldn't be too long, and it would help me a lot. My project is due the 10th of December, 2004.

I don't know anything about it - will forward to my partner and see if he can help. I am not an expert :)

On long winter nights near the air base, jet noise can be the only friend you have. It also improved my marriage by making me deaf.
