  • John Spinuzzi here. The neat, squared-up netted bunk was mine (brag). You might remember that I had also smuggled in some MREs, heaters, and protein powder.

    Capt. Rodriguez is far right top photo, standing behind Max.

    That’s Kurt Kuhn laying on the foot locker. His friend Pete Hegge and I stay in touch.

    I still have more photos and some copies I can send out if anyone is interested. Got one of the American girl backpacker we picked up at the ruins that flew back to base with us.

    Remember the night we set up a perimeter and guard rotations at our barracks entrance to stop the nightly ‘raids’? Boy, were they pissed off!
