Happy 4th of July
Even a week in Afghanistan would make me appreciate our freedom, people and prosperity, let alone a year. We celebrated our 232nd birthday with a camp wide festival. Lots of good stuff to eat and enjoy. We had 3 on 3 basketball, 3 point shots, timed weapon assembly (shown), voting and absentee ballot registration (shown), a visit by a camel and donkey, a raffle, excellent barbecue and the always-popular volleyball tournament. About a dozen teams this time and shown is a shot of Chief Kelley going for a low one (successfully). Great turnout and a good time despite 106 degrees.
