Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)
AWRDS database administrator operating out of a comfie office in Balad whenever I wasn't being exiled to on-site support at some FOB or another. (I tried to change the deployment location to stop the display of ribbon I didn't earn, but some RP programmer is more stubbornly clever than I am)

Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)
AWRDS database administrator then site lead, co-located with the then-new Theater Property Book office. Lots of fun supporting the early efforts to get a handle on all the equipment (from pre-po stocks and new-issue) which got parked and left when the initial wave of troops got to head for home.
