midday heat

today was pretty hot here. our base is right next to the tigris river. Its a crazy feeling being 23 and seeing the tigris river. Out base sits amongst rubble and ruin of the push for bagdad. tank grave yards, destroyed buildings and a barron landscape. we got stuck in a sand storm yesterday and it turned day to night. I felt like i was in the twilight zone. Things here are good. we practiced so drills of getting patients out of our bradley fighting vehicle which proved to be one hell of a task. The daily grind goes on and on...
