Nick's excellent adventure

Nick came through Baltimore last night on his way from Iraq back to his Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan. He's been in Iraq building stuff for the army (although he's in the Air Force) for the last 6 months or so. Mark drove up to the airport and picked him and his 2 other buddies from his base up and took them to the hotel where they were staying, and then out to dinner. There was lots of guy bonding time to be had. :)
Here's one I took this morning of Mark and Nick at the hotel before we took the guys back to the airport. I went with Mark this morning so I could spend some time with Nick before his long flights. I knew a couple of people on the Baltimore to Chicago crew and the agents were fantastic about getting him good seats, in fact they're always so good to all the Military folks flying out. Baltimore is a terminus point for the charters from Kuwait, Quatar, and Frankfurt so the agents are used to having lots of military on the flights.
Here's one of Nick and his two friends that he was in Iraq with. They're based together back in Japan and will be flying together back to their base.
We're so glad that we were able to spend the time with Nick, and that we happen to live where he was spending the night, some times things work out perfectly! :)
