Waiting in an Ocean of Sand...

We're here in the middle of the Kuwaiti desert at Camp Buerhing. It's not bad...nothing grows here. Very desolate. We had to go shoot our M4s and 9mm weapons yesterday and we saw a line of camels walking way off in the distance.
Right now, I'm in the USO building where military personnel can use DSN phones, the internet, play games or just hang out and chill. It's nice....and very busy. I have limited time on the computer so I'm being brief.
Amazingly, there is a Starbucks here! It's surrounded by a 8-10 foot tall Hesco barrier. Walking in there makes you think you're back home. So, we're basically waiting for a flight to Baghdad. More to follow....
