I got some pix...maybe we can share to compare how zhari has progress.
So you were a project manager with Raytheon in Kuwait, then now you're in the US, living in the Midwest and have a pharma degree and are a pharmacist? Now you were in Afghanistan working as a USAID contractor?

I think we need more clarification, or rather timeline.

please elaborate on your "boots on the ground" experience. I think you're referring to Swish here, but some of us "e46 Rangers" have gone out on patrols, weeks at a time, living in farm houses/out of vehicles, cleared villages, taken IDF, etc.
