    So I was notified I am heading to Balad AB, IZ soon. I'll be there for summer and winter.. (Yeah, Lucky me!)

    Anyone have any good info as to what I need to bring outside of the normal stuff or any other comfort items it may behoove me to take?

    Ok.. We have a fairly good basic loadout. Liken us to an ODA and we get the same stuff, i.e.; wool socks, goretex, northface gear, etc, etc..

    But I'm looking for the stuff that when you get over there you go "oh shit! I knew I should have brought x, y, or z..."
