Ali Al Salem Air Base
Rick called this morning about 6:45 and told me to get my bags together. He told me we were going to try to go to Ali today for Military Air transport to Baghdad. It seems my old orders are good enough until September 1 . So here I am in the outrageous heat, it must have been 120 today. This picture is the transit tents at ali. They have 8 bunk beds to a tent. It was kind of dusty inside, but a place to crash while waiting for your flight. I hope to get out tonight after Midnight to Baghdad. Wish me luck because I will need it to get out of here tonight.
