Be safe out there brothers. I was there in '08, my wife in '09, and my brother is finishing up his tour from '10-'11.

To all the companies and people supporting the guys (and girls) out there - Thank You! What might be considered "a little bit of effort" could move mountains.

Keep your heads down and happy hunting!

Well said brother, any package no matter how big or small will raise morale of troops out here. Nothing beats like getting a piece of home and the generosity of the American people. For us, that's what make you our heroes. HOOAH!

I to would like to pass on a special thanks to Chad at Fastlane and Kendell at A-Main. I am in Bahrain an although there is no off road to racing here I have been able with there support to have all my RC needs ready for my return to Florida this summer.

With people that them back in the states shipping over here the rc parts and wraps sure make the time go by a little faster.

It's always heartening to see guys here banding together to help the troops in whatever way they can. I've been serving 15 years in the Navy in my own country and all I can say is: USA rocks!

To all the troops serving overseas away from home, be safe. We're all proud of you regardless of where we come from.

I have a RC8B practice buggy in good condition. All it would need is a RX, Battery Pack and Engine/Pipe.

I would be happy to donate it to anyone over seas that needs a buggy. It is in very good shape, Futaba BLS servos, Lunsford Screws etc. I even have a new body for it painted by Bradleys.

PM me.

The people mentioned had sent us usefull “swags” to be distributed to the men and women of the Armed Forces serving here in Iraq. The generosity will help Soldiers decompress after missions and keep them busy during down time. To my fellow Soldiers in Iraq, if you need anything RC related, please do not hesitate to PM me on what you need and I check our inventory for availability, but please keep in mind that our resources are limited. I would also like to thank everyone for their continued support to the troops, it really mean a lot to us. If anyone happens to be around COB Speicher, please get with us, one of our High Speed NCO had built us a world class track. We will post pictures on the track with our generous supporters’ banners in the background. Please visit their store/website. Thank you.
Glad to hear you guys are holding up good in Speicher, when i was there in 07-09 we had a little make shift track with ply wood jumps and sand bags for lane markers down on the south end of the airfield. I am currently at Camp Taji waiting patiently to go home,

A MAIN HOBBIES has made it possible for me to come home and jump right back into racing, they have outstanding customer service, as well as some of the best prices.

Stay safe out here guys and when your done watching the DVD, Make a DVD of everyone out there enjoying their hobby.
