    Hi from Baghdad

    Hi! I am John, a LT in the Navy. Currently temporarily stationed in Iraq, normally (for the next couple of years) at Whidbey Island, Washington. I am normally an open carry guy, with a Taurus Mil Pro .45 ( I know), but I do have a WA CPL. Nice to meet everyone here!

    My normal job is Aviation Maintenance Officer, here in Iraq I work with Iraqi detainee records.

    Do you work at the Embassy compound, the Rusafa Rule of Law compound, one of the FOBs...?

    And welcome!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Welcome to the forum from Virginia. As a vet of 24 years let me say, thanks for you service. I was a AF maintainer for my whole career. Of course I have been retired now for 14 years, but think I could still remember how to turn a wrench!
