Yesterday we had a little concert by country singer Toby Keith. Now even if you’re not a country music fan, you can appreciate the fact that a millionaire celebrity came to our little FOB in Afghanistan to put on a show for the soldiers and airmen here. He played for about a half hour and stuck to patriotic songs and numbers about drinking, both of which were crowd pleasers. After the show he stuck around and took some pictures with everyone, it was really a nice gesture for all the guys who are here.
A side from today’s excitement, this week has been pretty standard. Writing statements of work, reviewing bid submittals and missions to look at on-going projects and potential ones, tends to be how the days are spent here. Staying busy but not burning out, by throwing in the occasional movie, daily trips to the gym and reading. Time has been going by pretty fast here and I look forward to seeing everyone again.
Thank you and God Bless.
