    Some of the bigger bases in the "desert" are hooked up pretty nice. I was at Balad/Anaconda in Iraq and we had a damn near full size gym, a Burger King, Pizza Hut, and a Taco Bell.izza:

  4. Yep. It's just starting to get hot here. This heat is killer, it's even worse in Kuwait.. no breeze there.

    I've been to both and I don't think either were too bad. I know a lot of people hated Osan, but I really enjoyed my time there. If you get away from Songtan theres a lot of stuff to do in Korea. Plus, traveling is crazy cheap there.

  8. I just came back from Balad. It's huge! They have a pretty nice chow hall.

    i'da taken the balad trip. i did korea back in 99 and i was an alcoholic at 19. back then they sold budweiser in the vending machines for a dollar a can. deployments is what got me into the gym and loving how it made me look and feel. plus its the only thing that keeps me from whoopin ass on my junk-ass warrant officer(working out that is)

  16. Damn.. this was a great idea looking for sponsors on here. I wish I would have thought of that when I setup a powerlifting competition in the green zone.

    Ah good times.

  17. Thanks I'm just hoping to get some supporters. Everyone like a little incentives every now and then. I think this might be a way to keep everyone going if that makes any sense.

  18. Man, they didnt have anything like this set up over there back in early to mid 03. Haha.

    Awesome that you guys are setting this up, and that some of the companies are willing to help out.

    Dsade, Id say go with the guthealth! I can still remember those 2-1/2 tons rolling up with buckets of food, and as bad as it was, you are still stoked because it means you can put away that MRE. Haha, nah, I know they have nice chow halls set up over there now and all, but it cant be all that good anyway. Help em out with some GUTHealth.

    I think both are awesome but Gut Health FTW!! There were quite a few times in the desert when I could have used some GutHealth after eating at the DFAC.
