You think your job distracts you from your weblog?

Check out weblog, from soldiers deployed in “the ‘stans”. My favorite exerpt thus far:

“At 0100 we arrive at Camp Stronghold Freedom. This base shares an old Soviet Era air base with the local Air Force. Their pilots flying soviet made aircraft over the base awaken us many mornings. It’s cool to see some of the same aircraft we used those aircraft recognition cards to memorize years ago flying over, as friendlies. “

How times change, indeed.
There’s really only one relevant thing to say to these guys:
Thank you.
