Carol and crew wish every one a Merry Christmas from Bagram. And L, K, Z and myself wish the same from here in Georgia. Carol wanted everyone to know that she and the other troops really appreaciate all the prayers and stuff folks have sent. The pictures show her waiting for chow, and then in the chow hall. She said it was the best meal she has had in Afghanistan. They even had sparkling grape juice to do a toast!

Carol will be leaving Bagram and going back to Iraq in early January. She is getting a new job with more responsibility and is excited about that.
On the home front, K is training to be a Cavalry Scout and has begun to track deer and other critters. Here she is pointing out deer sign and holding the scoop she uses to spread out feed corn for them. I suspect she is hoping to draw Santa's sleigh pulling deer towards our property.... We'll have to see how that plan works out.

Carol wants every one to know that she is doing well. She does not have a lot of spare time to keep in touch with every one, and hopes this blog will help folks keep up to date with what she has going on. I'll update as I can.

It's pretty hot out here, but not as hot as Iraq! I'm doing training for my upcoming deployment to Iraq (Tikrit). Last week, I learned that I will be deploying a few months earlier than planned. I will report there in August.
It's very hectic here at the National Training Center (NTC) and we're working lots of long days, but staying busy helps the time pass a little easier.
I feel a little guilty because I'm staying in a hotel and driving a rental vehicle, not "roughing it" like the soldiers out in the field moving around in tactical vehicles, but if you have to go to the NTC, there's no better way to do it!
The NTC rotational unit I'm supporting is 3BCT/4ID, out of Fort Carson, CO. They have their act together, are very professional, and a joy to work with.....I would love to support this unit in Iraq!
Well, I'd better get back to work. Time to order more latrines and handwashing stations sent out to the FOBs! Exciting stuff, I know!!
I've never had a blog before, so thought I'd try it out. I am hoping a blog might be a good way to communicate with friends and family and allow me to post updates from time to time when I can't keep up with email.
I hope everyone enjoys reading and posts plenty of comments back to me too!
