A young man's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk...and apparently, back again.

AFGHANISTAN!


I made it! Finally got to my base (at least for the next month) in a border province of Afghanistan called Khost. The base is a FOB (Forward Operating Base), and I couldn't be happier to have stayed in Bagram for only one day. Pictured here is the amount of crap I've been lugging around, which is actually much less than most other individual augmentees. Still, it's a workout.
I arrived in country Sunday morning around 2:30 am local time after another sleepless night, and one more day of transient travel awaited me. This morning we pulled every stop to get me on a CH-47 Chinook helicopter to Khost, and it worked out well for scenic purposes...I've got to say it's been too long since I took a hop in a whirlibird. Photos will be posted shortly. So today has been spent getting to know everyone at Task Force Devil (appropriate place for a Devil Dog who's a huge NJ Devils fan), where I'll be Afghanistan's Regional Command East Public Affairs Officer. Oooh raaah!
