US Troops Raise NYC Flag
Over Afghanistan Base
By Doug Mellgren
The Associated Press

American Troops raised a flag of New York City given to them by city
firefighters over the new U.S. base in the Afghan desert Friday
to honor victims of the World Trade Center attack..
The flag was brought to the base by reservists from the Navy Seabee 133rd Construction Battalion, who joined Marines already deployed here, arriving from Guam aboard a C-17 transport aircraft early Friday.
They raised the flag-orange, white and blue with the city seal in the center-just below a U.S. flag on the same bamboo pole Friday morning, while Marines continued to dig around the base perimeter
 and hone their weapons skills.
"Two of our reservists had friends in the )World Trade Center) building, so when firefighters said "Will you do us a favor? Wherever you go, please fly this flag to remember those people, we said 'yes,'" Seabee
Chief Petty Officer Robert Tanner said.
Many of the reservists worked as Port Authority police and in similar jobs and helped in the rescue efforts after the suicide hijackers' Sept. 11 attacks on the twin towers, said Tanner, 40, of Rensselaerville, N.Y.
The Seabees also flew the flag in Guam, where they are usually based.
The Seabees were sent here to improve the hard-sand airstrip and the camp..
The old airfield, seized Sunday night by the Marines, is within striking distance of Kandahar, the spiritual center and last major stronghold of Afghanistan's Taliban movement.

Merry Christmas Bin Laden
Merry Christmas Bin Laden

 Twas the night before Payback and all through the Land,
 They're running like rabbits in Afghanistan,
 Osama's been praying, he's down on his Knees,
 He's hoping that Allah will hear all his Pleas.
 He thought if he killed us that we'd fall and Shatter,
 But all that he's done is just make us Madder.
 We ain't yet forgotten our Marines in Beirut,
 And we'll kick your butt, with one heavy Boot.
 And yes we remember the USS Cole,
 And the lives of our sailors that you bastards Stole.
 You think you can rule us and cause us to Fear,
 You'll soon get the answer if you live to Hear.
 And we ain't forgotten your buddy Saddam,
 And he ain't forgotten the sound of our Bombs.
 You think that those mountains are somewhere to Hide.
 They'll go down in history as the place where you Died.
 Remember Khadhafi and his Line of Death?
He came very close, to his final Breath.
 So come out and prove it, that you are a Man,
 Cause our boys are coming and they have a Plan.
 They are our fathers and they are our Sons,
 And they sure do carry some mighty big Guns.
 They would have stayed home with children and Wives,
Till you bastards came here and took all these Lives.
 Osama I wrote this especially for You,
 For air mail delivery by B-52.
 You soon will be hearing a thud and a whistle,
 Old Glory is coming, attached to a Missile.
 I will not be sorry to see your ass Go.
 It's
Red, White, and Blue that is running this Show.

This very special gift was left
 in my guestbook by a 
young boy from the Netherlands- 
Danny Stomphorst..
This is what Danny wrote
"On my page is an Memorial picture
 from me and my 
mamas friend his son Waleed.
He also died that terrible 
day the 11 september . 
He was on his way home in 
Flight 11AA, but never came home
again. His papa Joseph still blames it all to himself because he asked
Waleed to come home because he 
missed him so. But now he have to miss him for ever, like a lot of people 
have to miss there beloved ones."

My heartfelt sympathy in the loss of 
your dear friend...
