that everyone signed in the vendor area? Well, I got a card tonight from Major Jim Manel in Iraq.

Dear Larry

I'd like to thank you and all of the men of Popasmoke.com. The words of advice on your banner ring true as only experience can attest to. We have done our job here well, but there is always more job to do. Everyone's thoughts and prayers must have worked because I'm packing my gear with the same amount of holes in me as when I left.

Be Well & Semper Fidelis
Maj Jim Manel
Habbaniyah, Iraq

PS - got an e-mail from his bride tonight. He just got home!!!
