Me, almost in Syria...

I was cleaning and found this photo. Some of the guys may remember this road. It was north of Sinjar, had like 80 "S-Turn's". We took it to resupply the retrans site for S-6 Bat Commo. This picture is over looking the Syrian Boarder at the top of the mountains. This was taken by Sgt. %^&$ of S-6. We took a HUMVEE one warm afternoon for a joy ride to the retrains site. A great friend had just sent me a package of upstate NYs finest. We stopped at the local and only "bar" got some terrible scotch and an even worse cigar. But despite that, those "S-Turns" were never as much fun. Funny how the past can seem so bright sometimes.. even in that shit hole.
