Hey James: Nice pics. Just want you to know that, although a civilian contractor may in fact be the most invisible SOB in the universe, some folks understand, and those who don't, well, eff them. 200+ civilian contractor KIAs pretty much lays down the truth of the risks you all take over there. Keep yer ass outta them helo-copters as much as possible! Never go first, unless it is something good at the DFAC. Right, that about takes care of ever having to go first. Luv them MREs!

Congrats on becoming a TOM. I think it may be one of the best jobs in LOGCAP, though it may not seem like it some days. The money will ensure you and yours go first class the rest of your lives. Sittin' in the front row....

Fritzi tells me he's joined up with AAFES. Guess those boys will be gettin a few waves across whatever pond Fritz lands in. Who knows, maybe you can hire him back. (I have not heard from him since he hit Kuwait about 2 weeks ago.)Lord knows KBR needs good hands.

Well, enough. I worked with a bunch of perverts, cracker ass crackers and plain garden variety dumb asses in my time in Iraq. (I guess I let them know that pretty clearly.)Every great once in awhile, I got to work with someone I respected. You were one of those, and, for what it is worth, I enjoyed working with you and respected you as my boss. Good on ya, James.

Hope your tour goes safely,

Russell Roberts

Hey Russ. Contact me at my company account and give me an email address so we can keep in touch. You can never tell when I might need a great HazMat guy in Mother Russia.
