Getting ready for TDY next week
This is a cool picture of the inside of a C-17. I flew in one of these from Ali Al Salem Kuwait to BIAP (Baghdad airport). These are a little nicer than the older C-130s. I found this picture on a Navy site. I did not take pictures the last time I flew. So next week I fly out to my new assignment in Tallil or FOB Echo. This is a link to a website that explains all the Military Bases in Iraq. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/facility/iraq-alpha.htm A FOB in just another name for a Base (Forward Operating Base) Here is are some good maps of FOBs in Iraq. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/facility/iraq-maps.htm So this week is about getting ready to leave on the 25th.
