Well folks, that about all I have right now. Sorry that I don't have better/more pictures right now but I have a lot to do before I leave and not sure how much time I’ll have to take more pictures. If I do find time I’ll make sure I post them.

Well I believe I have all the rules covered. I have more then the minimum of 4 pictures. I have a complete and through description. I'm obviously a registered member and according to Adam my signature complies with TCCA guidelines. Yep, got everything covered. Well I'd like to wish everyone luck and thank those of you in advance that choose to vote for me. :thanks: :thumb:

Looking great man!

My prayers will be with you while you're on assignment. Any ideas where you'll be stationed???

JR
Thanks

Actually i'm lucky enough i'll be stationed state side. The i'll be taking part in training of those 5000 reservists they are calling up they keep talking about on the news. Unfortunately i have no clue what the conditions will be where i'll be stationed at and i know i won't have my tools with to work on my car with :(

I've been activated twice before in my military career, both time as a Combat Military Policeman and both times in combat, but due to injuries i've received i won't be going back to combat anymore. So at least i'm luck in the fact that i won't be in Iraq

That's one hell of a long list of mods!

Good luck in COTM (you got my vote), and try to keep in touch as much as possible while you're deployed!

I'll be sending an email.
