I know in the past I have not been the friendliest of people in the forums or on Hyperlobby. I wish this community the best of luck in the upcoming year. I believe this is the best gaming community in the planet with dedicated flyers.

I am off to Afganistan for a year. I will try to keep as much contact in the community as possible, viewing forums and posting our websites. I will have limited time and bandwith over there limited to posting and viewing, no flying.

If you wish to keep up on events visit our website http://vmf214blacksheep.com under general forums Pappy's. My wife will also post in forums of any news and current events. She would be thrilled to hear some support from the community and she knows how much I care about it.

You may also email me at vmf214pappy@msn.com

I salute you all and wish you the best of luck.

Pappy.

I know you're going in harms way and I hope you've a quick, safe and uneventful tour. Afghanistan's destabilizing faster than Iraq right now and they've drawn away critical troop strength to latter from the former. As a fomer Sgt. in the Combat Engineers I offer the following advice.

1. Keep your head AND your *** down.
2. Don't volunteer unless it's to save a comrades life.
3. Keep your head on a swivel.
4. Don't drink the local water or whiskey.
5. When in doubt hide.

All that being said, be safe and do good.

You say that only because you never have. There was once a time where I thought as you do and now I have a lot of sleepness nights due to the very trigger time you envy. I am glad that I did my part in the war on terror and will always be proud of it but make no mistake about it that the price of war is a heavy burden to carry and those that have been in war will carry that burden for the rest of their lives, long after the war is over for them (it is never really over).
