newmikey, I think this is a great idea...although perhaps not quite covert. Frankly, I think Adam should have a front-page banner welcoming him home.

This bloke did THE BEST description of what the U.S. & its Allies is trying to achieve there.
He is obviously a pretty decent bloke & deserves the best upon his return.
Cheers, Pickles.

And a pop-up advert saying "Congrats on coming home!" with garish balloon gifs.

Salut Heie,

Thank you for providing us with a glimpse of your deployment. Your updates were much appreciated and your photojournalism was exceptional. Thanks for teaching us about everyday life in that part of the world - not something we see regularly in the media.

And, as a bonus, we got to hear about the field-testing of your Pentax gear! Talk about rugged.

- Craig

Welcome back. I enjoyed several of your sets.

Watch out for cars till you get used to being back in the world of texting while driving.

+1! Absolutely, this is an excellent idea.

I have viewed his threads, and they are done quite well. Very professional looking. It has the look of someone who is getting paid for the work, yet it is just a "hobby" for him. His immediate family, friends and community must be very proud of him.

Welcome back Heie! Welcome home.
