On shift just looking for trouble makers, something happens every day within this 3 km radius.
Good Day All,
Thought I'd drop a hello. I'm in a smaller FOB or Patrol Base for a couple of weeks.
The weather has been near freezing at night and almost 30 during the day. We live in a school that's quite comfortable. The surrounding village is a maze of pot fields, grape huts and mud homes. There is no electricity in the area so it's lights out for us and them around 6 pm. Stars are the brightest I think I've ever seen. We have white light in rooms at night but practice light discipline (red lights only) outside. The food is good, and there is a great group of ANA and Canadian troops here.
Only here for a couple of days and then move out. Hope everyone one is well.
