I sincerely hope it was their personalities and not their skill set that was so funny. [emoji6]

Re: G day mates!

Togreenfeet Up here in FNQ (Far North Queensland) we call people from Melbourne "Mexicans" AKA from over the border Hahahha don't know how that will sit with North American lot. I got to know a lot of the American ways when we served together in Vietnam very different to Ozzies . Never forget the look on the face of the guy in the PX in Vunggers when I asked for Chips and dead horse ( fries & ketchup ) I thought he was going to have brain fade Hahahahahahah

Re: G day mates!

The Aussies are bad ass. I love them. They were simply called “The Bearded Devils” They have all my respect. I went to Kandahar and purchased some patches to give the guys. I went looking for my buddy Jason. I couldn’t find him so I asked..... now read this in your deepest Aussie accent. Jason, oh he’s gone on a walk about mate, be back in about 3 Days! Hell even their female support troop was spitting tobacco! Haha. I have nothing but respect for them.
