Way to go SFC. BVF must be a ghost-town right about now. If you look at what the Germans did when U.S military stationed in Germany were forced to leave, you will see that the area was just a waste of space and cob-webs. This does not make any sense, politics. If it weren't for the U.S, Germany today probably would be far worse off then Saddam or any other dictator there is out there, today.
