Well everyone I'm off to Afghanistan after 3 months in beautiful Pakistan. It has been interesting to say the least. I have to say sleeping with 13 guys in one tent is really over rated. I hope I don't have to do it again. In all it wasn't so bad but we were really busy and didn't have any time for relaxiation. As a unit we flew over 2500 hours and delivered well over 20,000,000 yes that is million of supplies in the last 3 months. I didn't think it was possible but we did it.

I hope we never have to do something like this again but I think it will happen again. After having eaten rice at least twice a day, french fries at least once a day, something that looked like beef and something that I was able to identify as part of a chicken for the last few months I am looking forward to going to Afghanistan.

If any of you have questions please feel free to ask.

SPC Toney,

I am glad to hear that you are still safe. Thank you so much for keeping us updated. Please take care in Afghanistan.

I, too, hope that you never have to face the same type of situation again. I will be praying for you.

Baldimo,
Great to hear from you ! I have been wondering how it was going for you. Like Intrepid said, "Be safe, keep your eyes open, and your head down."

p.s. can you bring me back one of those hats ?

I want to know more about you and the other 13 guys in the tent. Feel free to post about it on the relationships and marriage forum.

Keep safe Baldimo.

A friend of mine recently got back after a year in Afghanistan and she brought back a stray golden labrador she found. We have no idea how it got there. I think you will find it is a very different kind of place.

Now, that is a baaaad lid.
I'll gladly send you a care package from the good old USA in exchange.
