Our names are Spc. Devine Beng and Spc. Eric Horsfield. We are deployed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. This is a nice way to end the week. It's a picture of a tractor trailer that someone decided to drive into a waterway. It took our 5-ton wrecker plus a tank recovery vehicle three hours to pull out. We just wanted to show you what happens when you get two city folk and 20 tons of truck in mud.

My friend and I went four-wheeling at Kaina Point in Hawaii. When we pulled up there was a Jeep in a water hole up to the windows. The driver said that when he went into the hole the water was only up to the middle of the tires. He left the truck overnight and it rained so hard that the water rose up to the windows. It took an '80 3500 Chevy to pull him out.
