Fillin' in the gaps


























































These are a random assortment of pics that I took over the past few weeks. The top one is a picture of the volcano in Legaspi PI. It is still an active volcano. We flew a c-12 around it and they got close. It was a pretty amazing ride. I believe this volcano is one of the 7 wonders of the world, and we got to see it on a clear day.



The next pic is of a sunset over Danang, Vietnam.


The USS Peleliu is in the next one. I am on board an LCU and we are approaching the ship after coming back from Vietnam for the day


You will see the Vietnamese flag being flown at a school in the next pic. This is where I will be tomorrow doing a medcap mission.


Yes I am in body armour in the next one. This was what we had to wear to transit in Jolo to our last medcap there. It was hot as ____ (fill in the blank)
Next is a pic of me with some of our workers and some of the Filipino volunteers. They did an amazing job translating for us!
This was a pic of the entire group after we landed back in Legaspi after our 18 days in the jungle. We were so happy to get back to the ship and I never thought I would be saying that.
The next 2 are pictures of Danang. Everyone is on bikes! The last pic is the 60 that took us up to Legaspi on our final day in the PI. Boy were we happy to fly in that. Did you know they actually have air conditioning in them!
More pics and stories to come from Vietnam after we do our missions here. Take care and thanks again for all the comments. You'd be amazed at how much they help out!

"For those that haven't heard, caroline and I had our second child this past saturday 7/7/07 at 0755. He was 8lbs, 15.4 oz and 22 inches long. His name is Kenneth Reid...can someone get on Ryan's gay blog and let him know. I don't know what that address is."

Thought you would like to know, the circle of girls has been broken! :)

Have a great time on liberty!
