3/15/2003 Kuwait: "We took a picture the other day of Communications Company. We have about 180 Marines spread across two sites. This only has about 100 of them in the picture. They're a great lot. I've already told the Marines that based solely on the work they've done in the past month that they've forever earned my lifelong respect and gratitude. It's amazing to see 18-19 year olds do so much with no complaint. "

Local amateur radio operators volunteered their time and equipment to make the event a success. Operators are assigned to key race officials, directors, rest stops, timers, sag wagons, trail vehicles, and others relaying race progress, rest stop supply needs, emergency medical requests, and the like. It's a great way to for amateur radio operators to put their skills and tools to work. Being involved also helps to prepare radio operators for working emergency situations including severe weather and disasters.
