Re: Were do I begin ?
Billy, Let me chime in and also thank you for serving this great country of ours. I also am a veteran of the Vietnam Era. Years back I was working on a jobsite in Iraq and found that the rocks that were being used for fill were in fact picture jasper. Unfortunately we were unable to bring any of this material back home with us. Believe me it almost brought tears to my eyes to see the jaspers being put back into the ground and probably never to be seen again. I did break open a few and the colors were very bright and the patterns were fantastic. The only thing we could bring back were purchases made from the locals. I hope you take care in all that you do and return safely. But be aware of the possibility of confiscation.
