Smile Hi From Italy!

Hey everyone hows it going? My Army NG unit the 126th has been sent to Longary, Italy for 3 weeks, to help out the MP's already here on the US Air Born Base in Vicenza Sorry can't remember how to spell the name of the town the base is in, but they have us staying in Longare, Italy.

One thing I can tell you about Italy is that you better bring some money, over here they use the Euro. For every 1 US dollar you will get 0.65 in Euro, but the wine is Great! and it is the best food that I have ever had!!

Anyway I was just checking in, it has been a while, So you all have a great one and I will talk to you all later!!

Just kidding!

Enjoy your time over there. Heck, you're taking a vacation on Uncle Sam. Well, not really. I know it's not all play, but have fun and see what ya can.

.65Euro/1US is definitely down from when I was in Europe in the Army back in 2004. I think back then it was around .80Euro/1US And I thought that was bad! The economy is really going downhill quick!

My wifes family is from there. Her family is from a very small town south of Rome in the hills or mountains just north of Naples. Italy is a wonderful country with very friendly folks with a lot of class about how they do things there. I've been there twice and I'd go back tomorrow to some places. Take the time to get to know the people and the place - the opportunity may not come again.
