Why I like Iraq (another list)

>Lot’s of free helicopter rides!!!
>The camp laundry folks will fold your clothes for you
>You can have Chicken and rice two meals a day, seven days a week!!
>People send you packages. Everyone likes to get mail…
>Free entertainment – Toby Keith was playing at Camp Victory last night. I was able to drive by the crowd on my way back from HQ.
>It’s an adventure!! Travel to foreign lands and meet exotic people (all male)
>Impromptu air shows. The Apaches were just unleashing some hell on the Muj outside the east wall earlier this morning.
>Free room and board
>You never get cold waiting for the bus….


Uh… that’s about it. It sort of sucks here.

You mean Lisanne doesn't fold your clothes for you at home ? :-)
And, you forgot all the opportunities to get a killer tan.

No tan - you have to wear your sleeves down in a combat zone and you always have on a hat or a helmet!!

Yes, his clothes are folded (and put away) for him at home with the caveat being: if things are put in the laundry inside out, they remain inside out after being laundered, folded and put away.
