I am currently in Iraq, where we are setting up PBO's for the military side of the house. We are in the process of setting up DRMO's, CIF's and all the good stuff. But I do need some help. I need to get a copy of an ULLS-S4 manual. My ako account is on the fritz and I am working with them on it. Can anyone out there help me?
I have everything you need from ALAT North in Balad. If you are in Baghdad, you're in luck. I have everything from the ULLS S4 manual, to Logistician cheat sheets, code references, system revuild flow charts, and just about any other support manual, or contact for information.
bad news is, it's on "Electrons" meaning a thumbdrive. Worse news is, my connection is dial up. Poor dialup.
IM me here, and I will provide further contact info, ect.
