    You know its funny you mention that. I saw the news on AFN and all the talk about potential riots and what not. I kind of laughed to myself because nobody cares if your black, white, hispanic or whatever over here. This place will put things in perspective for sure.

    I don't know if you're in Kabul or somewhere further out.

    Tobasco sauce is more important than anything for MREs.

    Good luck, kid. Come home safely.

    Luckily I haven't had to stomach too many MRE's. The plus side to living on an airfield is the food is usually pretty good.

    Obviously thanks and well wishes for you all...but lets hear about life over there for the last 10 months.

    Even in an Islamic community, I'm sure there are at least a few bars/pubs/some semblance of night life set up for you guys...right?

    Not sure whether serious or not. Haha. Seriously though until you are here and see the infrastructure (or lack thereof) its hard to imagine. Mud huts everywhere , most people just wear flip flops, and everyone lives near rivers because they are just surviving. I'm a pilot so I don't see the every day on goings but you get a really good picture of what this country is like from the air

    Be safe. It's going to be a while before the Jets win a Super Bowl, and you wouldn't want to miss THAT.
