Hopefully somebody will answer you.
However, my advice is for you to send a PM to Heater. Heater was deployed to Bahrain for a year or so (USAF). I'd bet he can hook you up with someone stationed (not deployed) there who can give you the scoop.
Regardless of that info, if you get good broadband internet access you can always go the slingbox route (requires either a residence in the US or a cooperating relative/friend in the US).
Alternatively, (and again with broadband Internet access) you can always go the online streams sites route, such as:
CAVEAT: I have not used any of these except JustinTV, but have used others in the past. What tends to happen is periodically these sites go offline (either due to gov't. action or lack of funds/interest), but the demand is such that a replacement or several spring up in their place. The speed of the upload (quality/buffering of the video) varies by each individual game/program because they are uploaded by dozens/hundreds of different individuals. That all said, I've had pretty good luck on OSU (or CFB games in general) in the past.
Hope that helps.
We've done some more shipments. So here are the updated project snapshots.
I dont ever think i will be able to donate the highest amount after see it.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Donation size is not a measure of value to our project (or Buckeye Nation in general).
We all do what we can. One of our Bucknut Supporters just happens to be a very well- established doctor and he made an incredible donation in honor of the 1961 team.
That was a truly awesome and has kept us in the black for months. However, it takes all of us to keep this afloat. We can't count on that big donation to happen every time we get tight on money.
Still no word on receipt of our last shipment. If any of you hear from your troops, let us know!
Good guys got another one!
Al Queda #2 Abu Yahya al-Libi was given a Maverick enema today in Pakistan by a US drone.
So you sent missiles instead of a care package.
I got a quick note that our "Library in a box" (shipped 5/22) was received.
No word yet on the boxes shipped 5/29.
Any of you that are in the Cleveland Area, this is Marine Week in downtown Cleveland. The Corps has about 750 Marines and some of all their different hardware on display. A lot of demonstrations, a concert by the Quantico Marine Band and pretty cool stuff for folks of all ages. If you're in the area, check it out.
Bump to avoid de-pinning.

Sorry been slacking. Too busy trying to get this cat sitch figured out.
That's a Rant inside joke to anyone who didn't catch it.
no wonder I don't go in there!
Thank you Troops and Happy Father's Day!!! I never served but my father was a weatherman on a Aircraft Carrier during the tail end of WWII in the North Atlantic. My uncle George did see lots of action in the Medetranian and South Pacific during WWII and my uncle Chuck flew in a B 17 during a great many bombing missions over Germany. Also my grandfather, who was a 1st generation russian immigrant, served in the US Army during WWI and was also a mustard gas survivor. I might be a Liberal Deadhead, but I have a great deal of respect for our men and women serving in our Armed Forces. Thank you and Happy Father's Day! Go Bucks!!! O H!!!

Awards Medal of Honor
Donald Russell Long (August 27, 1939 – June 30, 1966) was a United States Army soldier and a recipient of America's highest military decoration—the Medal of Honor—for his actions in the Vietnam War.
Long joined the Army in Ashland, Kentucky in 1963, and by June 30, 1966 was serving as a Sergeant in Troop C, 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division. On that day, Long's unit came under heavy enemy attack during a reconnaissance patrol. During the battle, a hand grenade was thrown near Long and the crew of a disabled armored personnel carrier. He threw himself on the grenade, successfully protecting his fellow soldiers while sacrificing his own life.
Donald Long, aged 26 at his death, was buried in Union Baptist Church Cemetery, Blackfork, Ohio.
Medal of Honor citation
Rank and organization: Sergeant, U.S. Army, Troop C, 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 1st Infantry Division. place and date: Republic of Vietnam, June 30, 1966. Entered service at: Ashland, Ky. Born: August 27, 1939, Blackfork, Ohio. G.O. No.: 13, April 4, 1968.
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Troops B and C, while conducting a reconnaissance mission along a road were suddenly attacked by a Viet Cong regiment, supported by mortars, recoilless rifles and machine guns, from concealed positions astride the road. Sgt. Long abandoned the relative safety of his armored personnel carrier and braved a withering hail of enemy fire to carry wounded men to evacuation helicopters. As the platoon fought its way forward to resupply advanced elements, Sgt. Long repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire at point blank range to provide the needed supplies. While assaulting the Viet Cong position, Sgt. Long inspired his comrades by fearlessly standing unprotected to repel the enemy with rifle fire and grenades as they attempted to mount his carrier. When the enemy threatened to overrun a disabled carrier nearby, Sgt. Long again disregarded his own safety to help the severely wounded crew to safety. As he was handing arms to the less seriously wounded and reorganizing them to press the attack, an enemy grenade was hurled onto the carrier deck. Immediately recognizing the imminent danger, he instinctively shouted a warning to the crew and pushed to safety one man who had not heard his warning over the roar of battle. Realizing that these actions would not fully protect the exposed crewmen from the deadly explosion, he threw himself over the grenade to absorb the blast and thereby saved the lives of 8 of his comrades at the expense of his life. Throughout the battle, Sgt. Long's extraordinary heroism, courage and supreme devotion to his men were in the finest tradition of the military service, and reflect great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.
Thanks so much for sharing D. What a great read.
Russell must have been one hell of a man...a credit to his family, town, state and our nation.
Thank you for sharing a little of his story.
It was so touching I had to come back and read it again.
Hey jar any word on that shipment from the 29th.
No, I guess it didn't arrive before Maxdamdil left for his leave. If his liason guy didn't distribute it then, our man will when he gets back.
Another shipment will go out to other units the first of next week.
Congrads on 10000 posts jarster!!!
