Hey there everyone. This is the start of pics from the Persian gulf touring company. The first weeks are going to be slow, but I hope to get some good pics as we start to go on the road.

Very nice Matthew, although I am not sure about the fuel economy on that thing!

Send more pics and updates when you can, and most of all....be safe over there!

Cheers!

Re: SGT Perry's Iraq Pics....

It's always a size thing isn't it Matt?

375 hp indeed! That's some power...

Looks like you've got one of the best and most protective vehicles there.

Shame you won't get to drive it

Stay safe

Stephen

Great pic!

And that thing looks like it could do more damage than a soccer mom in an SUV!

1. Picture of Pashnit sticker on rear bumper please.

2. Bumper sticker contest... "The US Army: We brake for nobody" comes to mind. I'm sure we could do better (given the..ah... talent in this forum...) Pashnites?
