    I'm out looking for the fucking IEDs every day, and you got me beat by a long shot. Tied on friends lost. I've fired a shitload of 203 rounds, but they were all either flares or rubber rounds for EOF.

    Husky is the safest vehicle we have in our mission package. Only one person has ever been killed while driving a Husky. It's made to be blown up, put back together and driven away - by the same driver.

    Good luck over there. Sending 2 from my shop for helpdesk... I know... Hard work...

    I would have gone, but my shop kept my butt out of it because of my newborn son. Otherwise, I'd be right there knee deep.
