    Message from across the Globe

    So I've made it to Balad Air Base Iraq. Good thing is I have easy access to the internet. Thank God I come still come here to get all the latest and greatest on the Ravens.

    Speaking of which WTF! One long plane ride later and instead of playing Monday we get a bye week! I think the NFL loves to shit on the Ravens.

    Anyway I'll regularly post photos from the sandbox.

    Stay safe. Tough break about the game that is for sure, hopefully you have good internet access, because I am sure AFN won't show any extra Ravens games (just the nationally televised night games) I found this out the hard way last year when I stayed up to watch the Cincy and NE game.

    Welcome to LSA Anaconda, brother... I've spent a little bit of time there during previous deployments. Relatively speaking, not a bad place to be stuck!

    Should be a relatively safe and uneventful stay, as long as you apply the training you've received and common sense.

    I believe the Army and Air Force still maintain operational control of the base.

    Stay safe and Semper Fidelis!!

    Two Deployments in the Navy to the Gulf was enough for me. Stay safe and hydrate.

    The biggest problem we ever have should be an unscheduled Week 2 bye. Take care, Dade, I want to see a photo of the world's largest replica of the Statue of Liberty, made completely of sand.

    Get started!

    If we have any part in entertaining you while you are over there serving our country, that almost justifies all the time I spend online during work!!

    Stay safe.
