                        Aaron, Monash was a field commander so I don't think he quite fits in a catagory of staff officers.

                        btw you seem to be quite fortunate in being able to travel to some very interesting areas.

                            Oh oops my bad

                            Yeah I was lucky to get a job straight out of school able to save up for my trips to Turkey, France and Belgium and they were great experiences.

                            There are plans of going to Greece year after next and I wouldn't mind going back to Belgium and checking out Germany
