George A. Brown II, GIS manager, Jacksonville, Florida, Sheriff's Office, says he has been an Esri user since the early days of ARC/INFO way back in 1988. He was wearing his favorite Esri T-shirt while standing in front of Carrickfergus Castle, located on the harbor in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is the most well-preserved and largest Norman castle in all of Ireland.

This was Tracy's fifth deployment to the Combined Joint Task Force 101 (CJTF-101)/Terrain Team and its predecessors, serving at Bagram since 2004. SFC Snyder is the noncommissioned officer-in-charge (NCOIC) of the 101st Airborne Division's Terrain Team. Serving in the U.S. Army as a terrain analyst for the past 18 years, Snyder has been deployed to Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Tracy says, "It is always a pleasure and a thrill working with our military counterparts using Esri software on a daily basis. Your [Esri] software is ensuring the information edge in our current operations in Afghanistan."
