    I hate them too! I used to eat at the Turkish restaraunt whenever I could, but FPOC (the fags that they are) shut down the TCN shops, etc. :soap:

    ...on a side note, AAFES now has a bunch more shops.:(

    North Dakota ARNG - Attached to 1st Infantry Division - we wrote the book on finding IED's.

    BN was spread out on Trailblazer missions from Tikrit to Baquba and everywhere in-between (Samarrah).

    I miss it from time to time....

    My team got to see most of Iraq with missions (outside of trailblazing) ranging from Mosul to Ah Najaf to south of Falluja to within 500 meters of Iran to Kuwait and back on security detail.

    Favorite MRE on the road was anything with the chocolate shake.

    Favorite DFAC meal - holiday meals. KBR did a great job supporting us IMO.
