Do you have addresses for the bases in Iraq? Where we could send letters...

Did somebody "adopt" you from that site?
The whole site adopted me, remember my mother is part of that organization

anyways...

I got alot of offers to send me mail or packages but in the end I had a bit TO much... My friends back home (who i didn't even know they knew I was over there) sent me an average of 1 package every day... sometimes two or three... I was kinda running out of time to reply to them all and space to put the stuff... but man... I've NEVER felt so good about being me... to know that many people cared... it's a feeling everyone should experience...

i had access to E-mail overthere but I found that when I got back that only about 10% of them actually made it through... the others were lost somehow. even the ones I forwarded to my yahoo account. so it's nice to have that reliablity of an actual Letter...

I had a friend write me an awsome letter... really it was just a short note... but what she said helped me through some trying times... and it was nice to just pull her letter out of my helmet...

really (to me) it doesn't matter... even the offer of mail makes things seem that much better...

Thanks for clearing that up. Man you had/have a lot of leave saved up. you need to use up some of those day and go riding.....

Do the AF grant you all pin point assignments once you leave an overseas duty station?
