    As many of you may already know, there are a few posters on the TM who reside in Bamberg, Germany, as members of the 1st Infantry Division Band. We have known for some time that we would be deploying to Iraq for 1 year sometime in Feb'04, and my friends, the time has come. In less than 72 hrs we will be on our way to Iraq, and on behalf of Jarrett and Rob I would like to thank all of you for the wild TM ride. It has been fun, I hope to reconnect to cyberspace soon, but there is no guarantee that will be possible.
    FreshBrewed will be our lifeline back in Germany, and he will keep the fort 'nailed down' for us. :lol: Thanx to Leigh McKinney, Bruce Lee, Noel Langley and all the guys at the FCB shoppe for your friendship and professional service and advice, it was nice meeting you and we'll have one helluva throwdown in about 1 year's time.
    Play hard, love music, and love thy neighbor.... [​IMG] :shock:

    Take care guys, you'll be in our hearts and prayers..... keep your heads low and shoot straight.

    Hopefully there's going to be an open invition to the party in one year, I don't think its one I'd want to miss in a million years, it'll be a doosy.

    Be safe,

    Hey Gary,

    Is there any truth to the rumor that you're getting your dream job...carrying the "football" (nuclear code briefcase) for "W"??? :shock:'re not Slim Pickens...riding that puppy "down" in the end of Dr. Strangelove!!! :lol:

    Be well my friend. God's protection.

    I'll echo that sentiment. Thanks alot guys, I've learned a ton about the trumpet in the last years through the TH and ultimately TM. Try not to worry, and pray for the hearing of all those we contact :). Thanks for the fun guys.
