Re: Gave Hookahs and supplies away. (No Joke)
I am glad I did it. The men will enjoy the hookahs and supplies. It is difficult to obtain some of the shisha brands locally. It is a hassle to send stuff like this back to the USA, with shipping and inspections, etc. Better to just spread some cheer with these men, who risk their lives to work with us.
I really need to get back to the USA. The medical care on this base, is very limited, soldiers who need treatment are sent to the military hospital in Germany. Once I get this illness sorted out, and I am pronounced fit for duty, I have a good chance of returning here on this project.
I like Iraq. It is not for everyone. It is 110 today, and I have been chugging down water, to cope with the heat. The dust is bad as well. No place for a sick person.
