In Kuwait

I am at Ali Al Saleem Kuwait. I left Fort Benning Georgia on 28 May, and we flew to Shannon Ireland. (I did not see any leprechauns). We spent four hours in the airport, then we flew to Kuwait. I checked into a tent, and I slept for 12 hours!

I am now trying to book passage to Babylon (Baghdad's old name). I have a pass, and I will be headed up there shortly.

This is an interesting life, I lead.

In Tampa Florida

Flew to Tampa on Sunday (now it's Wednesday). I got the shuttle from my house to Reagan National Airport. Then I flew to Atlanta, and changed to a Tampa flight. Got into Tampa, got my rental car, and went to the hotel. Ordered some Chinese food, sat back and relaxed.

Went to the office Monday morning. Paperwork, checking in. Started some training.

I will have to go to Fort Benning Georgia for a week, then on to Afghanistan. I will not get any time back at Lorton, prior to departure.
