On another note ... the Filipino's, myself included, are very thankful for all the help you guys are giving in the rescue operations in Southern Leyte!

It is all over the news tonight that your troops have successfully rescued survivors from the rubble / mud! Unofficial reports say the number at 50. No details yet!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

ETA: Thanks for the news briefs Lumpy!

Thanks for fixing this Eye-spy!

I didn't mean to offend! I just have quote issues with long posts!

My Grandparents and aunt lived in the Phillippines, They were interred during WW2, at Santo Tomas. I know they loved it there, my grandmother tells wonderful stories of the years before the war! I'll ask my Grandmother more specific questions about where they lived, next time I visit her.

It does look beautiful there.

Mexico? Beautiful country with pitiful societal problems. But that's a political tar-baby no one wants to touch.


- I used to have a desire to make a journey to Nepal. Now? I don't think so



The only good thing about the palestinian / Israeli conflict, is that it spawns some great gun pix!

Great stuff, Lumpy

The ACU is a bad idea. The Marines did it right with two different types. I wear my DCU's more even though I have the ACU's too. Hold out as long as I can.
