Some more pictures of my visit to Bosnia.......

July 4th, 2000 Bar-B-Q in Bosnia...... right before this picture, I was surprised to see how "red" the color of the cooked brisket was. As it turns out the brisket had been pre-cured and then re-seasoned with my seasoning. It was too salty !! This was an unfortunate mistake. The hard working Bosnians in the background can be seen cooking the steaks, chicken and ribs.

Here is a picture with Suada in the kitchen at Eagle Base. She is a very hard working woman that spoke "almost" perfect english. She helped me prepare the barbecue sauce and was my translator.

Two of our heavily armed Military Police Security soldiers guarding us near one of the "mass graves".

Srebrenica..... a city terribly damaged by the war. The bare ground near the weeds is where a Muslim mosque once stood. It was completely destroyed. Notice the large hole in the wall, and the destroyed wall structures in the building.

A destroyed battery factory on the road leading to Srebrenica as seen by a UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopter.

A street in downtown Srebrenica. Notice the bullet holes in the second story of the buildings.

Major General Robert Halverson, the Commanding Officer of Task Force Eagle.
MG Halverson is a great leader and very capable soldier. I was honored to be able to meet him and all his soldiers at Eagle Base.
