I was transferred to Camp Morehead, east of Kabul. About 45 minutes driving time, from my old Camp. The camp is small, but it has a decent barracks, and the shower house has hot water. The chow hall is decent, but my old discomfort has returned. It is December, and the cold weather has not arrived. The days are pleasant, about 70 degrees! All I need is a light jacket for night wear. The barracks is as quiet as a tomb, but I still have some difficulty sleeping. The project is on track. I drove back to Eggers yesterday, and collected some additional materials. For now, we are setting up the classrooms, and preparing for the students. I met an Afghan man today. He had light skin, and Slavic features. Obviously he is a child of one of the Afghan women who were raped when the Soviets invaded in 1979. I pray that we will not meet the same fate as the Soviets. We came here to help the Afghans, and to crush the Taliban, and make this a safe nation. I believe we will be able to do this.
