FYI : Look in upper right corner of "My Comments" page.
Set it for "Brief" instead of Full.
You only will get title of thread and who pinged you.
No graphics will load.

Hello Canteeners,

I have a favor to ask.

I am on an e-mail list at work for Navy / Marine Corps vets. The guy who runs it is an ex Navy Captain. He is "plugged in" to the system and gets all sorts of interesting stuff.

What he just sent us today was a MS PowerPoint presentation done by the III MEF, USMC, on the recent operation in Falugia (sp?). It was fascinating. All sorts of pictures and analysis.

I think it should be posted here as a Thread in FR, but I don't know how. If anyone does and would be willing to post it, I will e-mail it to you directly.

Thanks,

Hi Luv W!

I was the only house in a neighborhood of 70 that isn't covered with Christmas lights. Today, I put a wreath on the front door. Does that tell you where I am? LOL!

P.S. You have Freepmail

Hi! The presentation you wrote of sounds very interesting, but I would not feel comfortable posting it using my name because I don't have first-hand knowledge that the author would approve of posting it in this forum.

Jim Rob is a good source to give you direction on how to post it using your name, if you are certain that the author and the proper authorities would approve.

Best Regards,

Spotsy

Well there is report off Wash Post in Wed runs reporting that growing evidence that Syria Hezollah send miltants to fight our US Troops

I don't get this report off AP wire reporting that some foreign workers claim that they were threated when first told their supervisors about prison abuse in Abu Gariah prison in Iraq

WTF

Is our US Army becoming Sopranos

I think on episode of Sopranos

I've received that powerpoint presentation, too....assuming it's the one that is in the neighborhood of 50 slides!

I would not post it on FR, but that's just because it hasn't been released to the general public yet...at least, not to my knowledge.

Once it is, the best bet would be to store the presentation online in your own web space, post the first slide as a picture (.jpg, whatever) and link that back to the presentation for readers to download if they wish. It's a pretty large file.

Just my 2 cents' worth.
