Bill's email

. . . received from Bill today

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well. I have been keeping busy. Just in case you did not know the Tour de France is about 2/3 complete. We have been following the race on-line and we get to see it on TV (delayed one day of course). The military person over our program here is also a biker. So we talk about the race and watch the finish most days on TV.

On our down day this past week we went shooting on one of the training ranges on the west side of the BIAP. I enjoyed the shooting. The cleaning of the weapons is not as fun but you learn everything about the weapon. I used SIG, Glock, and Beretta pistols and a MP5 submachinegun on the 25 meter range. Hopefully next time we will be able to shot some rifles. I believe we plan to go again in a couple of weeks. Something to look forward to.

That is about it for now except it has been hot, 110 to 117 everyday for the highs and mid 80s to low 90s for lows at sunrise. I am down to 6 more weeks in Iraq.

Everyone take care
