| NE W STHE WIRE | PAGE 5 Which would win in a race, a banana rat or an iguana?The iguana. Have you seen the way that thing runs? Airman 1st Class Mario Lopez Casas An iguana. Ive seen them jump, Ive seen them run from cars and theyre really fast. Ive never seen a banana rat run. Aviation Electrician Mate 2nd Class Dustin Hill A banana rat, because iguanas are more opportunity eaters whereas banana rats are more picky, so the banana rat will have more fight. Construction Mechanic 2nd Class John Mauck An iguana, but its just a guesstimation. Army Sgt. 1st Class George Watkis Time in service: 4 years Hobbies: year-round diving, karaoke, volunteerism The boss says: Hes a character and our can-do guy.
