Kosovo

Here's a few of my time in Kosovo 2/02 - 5/03.

Leaving Zurich for Pristina

Russian MI-8...what a leaking, rattle yer teeth loose POS that is....

Most cars/trucks are diesel.

Nothing like holding a concrete roof up with a bunch of sticks

In front of UN headquarters - UNMIK-United Nations Mission in Kosovo

Cruise missile = instant renovation

Quals at the Close Protection Unit Range - It's only -10 degrees

Detention Center = Maximum Security Prison-where the war criminals are jailed-my 1st duty station

Round like a donut

Tallest smokestack in Europe

Right across the street from my "accommodation"

Serbian Artillery Bunker after it was hit by a US 2000lb LGB ouch!

Glad I wasn't in this when it was raked by an AK47

Guarding the UN SRSG

Oblique power plant-1 generator running-power on 2hr,
off 4hr 24/7.....UGH!

Training the Close Protection Unit w/MP5 at the Oblique Range +5 degrees

How it's done...

Best Language Assistant (LA=translator) in Kosovo

KPSS-Kosovo Police Service School in Vushtrri-Int'l Instructors School

View of the mountains from Camp Bondsteel, USA. At the time, the largest Army Post in Europe.


Car bombs, machine gun fire, STONED with ACTUAL ROCKS, hand grenades, and RPG's.

God it's good to be back in the USA!!!!!!!
