    Here's a few pics of me with an Alembic Essence I picked up off of Ebay and had shipped here. I'm standing in front of the Presidential Palace in Baghdad. The inscription in the one picture reads:

    Top line, right to left: "Well never find a hero like you [referring to Saddam]."
    Middle line, right to left: "You [Saddam] build and advance Iraq from the beginning to the end."
    Bottom line, right to left: "Saddam, you are Iraq and you light every house in Iraq."

    The other pics are in front of one of the wings to the Palace that Saddam had added after the first Gulf War to celebrate his "victory."

    Hang in there bro. We think you guys are doing a great job and we are so fortunate to have quality Americans like yourself that have the stones to make this country what it is. Did all my time on carriers, and I don't envy anyone who faces RPGs and AKs daily. Hope you find kevlar a case for your new baby.

    I'm doing fine for right now, thanks. My in laws send me care packages on a fairly regular basis, so what I can't get through the Army they usually get for me. I do appreciate the offer, though.

    I still want to know why they let a guy like you have that tactical sidearm rig.
