Josette Pullen, GIS analyst, the Army Corps of Engineers, volunteered to go to Iraq with the Army Corps of Engineers to be the GIS support person for its Task Force Restore Iraqi Oil. While wearing her color-coordinated Esri T-shirt, she had her picture snapped inside the drained fountain in front of Saddam Hussein's palace in Baghdad, Iraq, in November 2003.

Lola Akinmade, GIS/Web application developer, Woolpert LLP (headquartered in Michigan), happened to find herself in Budapest, Hungary, recently in front of the Chain Bridge with the Buda Castle District in the background. Her Esri T-shirt is the icing on the cake.


Bill Holder

Bill Holder, Assessor's Mapping Department manager, county of St. Charles, Missouri; his son; and the rest of the Boy Scout troop from the Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in New Mexico hiked a total of 70 miles at an average altitude of 9,000 feet carrying 60 pounds of gear for 10 days. We're glad he wore his Esri T-shirt on the top of Baldy Mountain.

Ric Skinner, senior GIS coordinator for Baystate Medical Center's Health Geographics Program, Springfield, Massachusetts, and Paulette Mandella, senior administrator for Arch Wireless, Westborough, Massachusetts, are shown enjoying the sights of Slea Head, Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, Ireland. The Dingle Peninsula is the most westerly point of land in Europe. Ric drove and consulted downloaded maps while Paulette frantically kept reminding him, "Drive on the left! Drive on the left!" Fear not, the ArcNews T-shirt gods would have kept him on the straight and narrow!
