Well the Air Force decided I must be doing too good with my Home Inspections so they have sent me to Turkey until after the first of the year. I looks like the Turks and Kurds are not getting along so we need to be a buffer for them. I do not think any of these people will ever get along.
I just want to tell all of you Merry Christmass and a Happy New Year.

Good luck Carl and thanks for your service to our country.

Hope you have a safe and Merry Christmas also, and I’m sure we are all praying for you and all our troops for a safe return for the New Year.

Take care of yourself and be safe. Thanks for your service to our country.

Carl keep your spirit up and your a$$ down, please come home safe! Thanks for your service, I will pray for you everyday. If you have access to a computer, let us know how you’re doing. Sincerely, Ken :frowning:


The Turks or at least the Turkish government is my sworn enemy. I’m originally from Cyprus. Take care of yourself and be safe.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!!

Thank you and your family… Bless you brother…

Be safe, Carl!

And thank you!

Just think, all expenses paid vacation to TURKEY. Why is it that Nassau and St. Thomas can’t get along for the holidays.
Be Safe The people in Milwaukee need you.

stay safe

Mario, I can not have a political opinion on what is going but I think the Kurds need their own place.
I wish Hawaii would act up so I could go their to keep them in check. It was warm in Iraq last year when I was there but it kept raining iron. At least here the rain is water. I will keep my head down and try to have a good Christmas.
I feel it is my duty to do this because I love my country.

Thank you for your service to our country. My brother is leaving for his second tour of Iraq next month. Remember the old sayin “never volunteer”…oh yeah and mine…try to be invisible:shock:
Merry Christmas


Precisely why I didn’t elaborate.
You of all people know about the Cyprus problem. And I know what your thinking Turkey is a NATO country. Maybe it shouldn’t be, remember when it would not allow US troops to go to Iraq via Turkey?
I agree with you that the Kurds need a homeland.
When I said to be safe I also included to be safe when interacting with the Turkish population. If you have not been to Turkey before I’m sure your buddies in the AF will fill you in.

You don’t have to respond just be safe and come back in one piece for your family!!

Mario, is this a fact or a personal vendetta? Many I know have had wonderful vacations in Turkey including myself.

This is a fact Erol http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_1161.html
