One of Two Things I Miss from Bagram

There are only two things I miss from Bagram, AF; the people and the view. I live in a very flat place, and I miss seeing the mountains that surrounded the base. I guess the balance favors home, however.

Way off topic, but everyone needs to apply the SECURITY PATCH featured in the green box if you are running ANY windows operating system (XP, ME, NT, 2000, 98, 95, 3.1). There is a huge vulnerability in the coding that lets you view pictures using windows. All web browsers and e-mail clients will at various times access this code to perform different imaging tasks. This is a BIG FAT SECURITY RISK. There is more info HERE.

PS. If the Hyperlink don't work, here are the URL's from above:

This will disable the Microsoft Picture Viewer feature, but there is a safer alternative here:

Yeah, I just saw the warning for that thing on another site. I reckon we'll get it at work sooner or later...

Go north, Major! Some of our beautiful Wisconsin hills soar to heights of over one thousand feet above sea-level!

How you gonna keep 'em down on the flatlands, once they've seen the Hindu Kush?

I've only got a couple of 14ers in my neighborhood, but the Hindu Kush makes them look like molehills. Nice photogs as always, Major John.
