Smile May God Bless All of You!

Dear All; I am heading back to Fort Dix this evening, to be shipped out shortly for our mission in Iraq. Uncle Sam actually sprang for several thousand dollars to equip me with hearing aids so I could be shipped out! Well, I finally got something from the government! Everyone continue to preach the diesel gospel, and keep me in your prayers. I should be returning next June. Only the GOOD die young, so I have nothing to worry about! However, just remember that my life has been infinitely more rich for having known all of you. God(diesel)speed to all of us. Love...Brussels.

Godspeed, and don't forget to duck.

Thank you!

Jack - we've all got our fingers crossed for you! Be sure to drop us a line here from time to time to keep us updated - you did say you'd get better Internet service over there than over here...

I'm looking forward to next June when you can start planning on coming to TDIFest 2008 (or at least one of our GTG's!)
