      Thank you. Yes, I am a big fan of pictures to help preserve and carry forward a memory. But I have to be careful so I do not overlook enjoying the moment the memory is created too

    Wonderful pictures. Your day is almost here, so happy for you. Just seems like yesterday that I first found your blog, you had months to go. I just want to let you know, all these months with your pictures, comments and things you had to go through it help make the months go by so much faster. Because of you my son and his soldiers have wonderful pictures of themselves for futures years. You did a wonderful job with this blog and I thank for it.

  4. Absolutely fantastic….Did they smile in any other pics your may have:)

  6. You know… we so often read the news stories… or see the reports on TV… but we rarely get to see *who* they are… the literal, human face… thank you for posting these photos.

    Was it still pretty gnarly out there at Al Masaak? When I was there in 2011 we were the first people out there and had to eat MRE’s everyday, shower with water bottles, and sleep on mattresses that had the springs showing. Plus the Romanian army out there got blown to bits. I’d post some pics up here if I could or if you would like me to send some to you. I’m not a soldier though just an electrician out there.

      I was there July-Sep 2012. The new LOGCAMP was juust getting established so we had new tents, beds, etc. The Romanians ran the messhall and it left a lot to be desired, but it wasn’t MRE’s. It would be great to get pictures of the ‘before’. If you do nto mind, send them to
