    Hi All,

    Just wanted to let you know that I made it to Iraq safely and I am enjoying the beautiful scenery here in southern Iraq. I am staying gainfully employed planning logistics convoys for the southern part of the country. I will definitely check out the forums periodically- but my participation will be limited. I hope to make it back in time for Gary Con III and I know that Chris and Dale amongst others are working hard to ensure everything is in place for Gary Con III.

    Stay safe, Luke! Can we send RPG care packages?

    Are you meeting any gamers? Stay safe and best of luck! :)

    I've started a "sister"-thread for this on EN World that you can also check out when you have those rare moments to do so (and to keep other gamers informed). ... -iraq.html

    Hope all is going well, Luke. Please know that there are many of us here that are always thinking about and praying for those serving in the military.

    Godspeed and come home safely.

    Hey Luke, I hear it gets cold there during the days. Where do you want me to send you the box of sweaters? They're big, warm, and fluffy. :p

    Be safe- and we will see you in a "few" short months. Also, Woody will be attending GC III.

    Yes its a frigid 120 today. Good thing I am a FOBbit and work indoors with AC :) I am glad Woody is finally making it to Gary Con.

    Stay safe, Luke.

    I truly wish I'd made the career I'd planned in the Navy but...

    So from one vet (100% disabled now) to one soon-to-be, come back in one piece with a sound mind.

    And thank you.

    Gainfully employed? Not gainfully deployed? Yuk yuk yuk.

    I'll have all these cold, frosty mugs of beer in your honor... repeatedly. Mmmm frosty beer.

    Not yet I'm afraid. I am working 12+ everyday. Still looking for a day off somehow. But I did nring some games with me just in case.

    I'm such a bastard. Not so much that I'd try and get New Glarus to ship out a case or 10 in unmarked boxes to your location... no, that'd be something someone else (Dale) might say.
