Here are some of the pictures I promised! Thanks to my assistant editor, Joyce. :-)
And my consultant, Rejenia.

Here is a picture of the warren of B-Huts near my office. If you look closely down the middle you will see b-huts stretching off into the distance. B-Huts are high class living here, but they are really just crowded plywood shacks.

Here is a view of the mountains in the distance (notice the b-huts in the near foreground). Bagram Airbase sits at approximately 5000 feet above sea level, the mountains in the distance reach to over 20,000 feet above sea level.

Here is another view of b-huts on the way from my hootch to my office. The white building in the distance is an MWR for one of the sub-camps within BAF.

Overall our quality of life here is good. We are overcrowded, hot and dusty but there are many others living without some of the comforts we take for advantage.

Personally, I'm working on being content; with my living conditions, my job, and my current situation. I thankful for what I have and I realize what I can do without.

Until next time, keep praying for out Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in harms way.

Phillips, out.

Being thankful for what you have and realizing what you can do without is a lesson for us all.

I am enjoying your blog as you seem to have a very calm approach to things that you are experiencing. I find many postings that have anything to do with the military are either very biased or vulgar. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Thank you for all you do,
