    So glad to here from you - hope all is well - we sure missed you at Catstock but we know you had more important things to do - Hurry back cause we need you to head up catstock for next year - Chris is busy with work and there is a conflict of opinions on when to have it - looks like Jermy and or bearcat will get the job - need you to show us all the hot spots -

    P.S. By the way have you sunk a pickup lately? LOL HaHaHa!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Henry,
    Glad you could take the time to worry about us when you have enough on your plate worrying about yourself, thank you doesn't cover what you and everyone else is doing for us but since I can't be there to help. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Be safe watch your six and if you need anything when you get back just let us know. God Bless each and every soldier oversees.

    Hey guys, I got these pics emailed from Henry (via Bearcat). Here is Henry's explanation, hopefully I can figure out how to attach them correctly.

    i wanted to send you some pictures. They are can you beleive this of CAT FISH AIR they operate out of FOB Anaconda/ Balad i have had the privlige of riding with them a couple of times. Black hawks are the only way to travel in Iraq you get to see so much more of the country. there is a pic of a black hawk and also what you can see from inside it might be a little blurred but i have a lot more to share with you when i get back
