    Taji has more junk tanks, self propelled guns and weapons than any other place I have ever been. There was a special collection of captured weapons in storage there for a long time. there were all kinds of presentation type weapons that were given to various members of the House of Saddam. We were lucky enough to be able to go in and get pics with those.

    I was so proud of these DFACs. We had a 7500 pax DFAC and a 5000 pax DFAC. The 7500 pax was called the SGM Cooke DFAC and was named after a Sergant Major who was assigned at Taji and was killed while on his last scheduled day in country. These DFACs were so good that Fox News even came and did a report on them.

    The 2 DFACs were erected in 45 days. from breaking ground to first meal served which was Thanksgiving day of 2004. BG Hammond told his troopers that they would be having Thanksgiving lunch in those DFACs and it fell on us to make his promise come true. We did.

    Favorite Dish: It is all good but I think the sandwich bar tuna was my favorite.

At Taji Warnings and Dangers

    AH-64s will really make it a bad day if you mess with them. 25mm chain guns, TOW missiles, and the baddest avionics in town make it an air beast.

    Even if you want to visit Babylon you must wait until the war ends, that is one of the most dangerous areas of the country. There is no "safe" area!
