At the Outer Limits of Afghanistan . . .

There is no need to adjust your set,
we control the vertical,
we control the horizontal . . .

While LTC Phillips waits for inspiration, Sergeants of FOB Salerno Hospital have taken matters into their own hands . . .

The Sergeants of FOB Salerno Hospital are here:

Msg Lisa A. Baker
S Sgt Christiana Webbs
1 Sgt David Child
SFC Mike Fields

Well, they say SFC Mike Fields is there with them, appears to be more of a phantom, or he can’t/won’t test post.

David S Child, 1SG USAR 396th CSH(FWD), Reserve Soldier
Vancouver, WA

1 Sgt David Childs is the Senior NCO on the ground.
He’s the one whose job it is to make things happen. . . (Note --- and he did)

Lisa A. Baker, MSgt, USAF Langley AFB, VA

She has been deployed to FOB Salerno for 3 weeks. This deployment has truly been different from last year’s deployment to Balad, Iraq.
It took her 13 days to get from Langley AFB to her final destination.
Describes FOB Salerno as nice, surrounded by mountains with hardened living spaces. They have 5-6 living in a hooch.
Counts it a big bonus that they have modern bathrooms.
Reminds us that there is a mix of Air Force and Army serving there. “They all are a very good bunch of people to work with. Right now it’s not very busy here which is good, meaning that the bad guys are somewhat under control.”
