Our replacements have arrived, a team of 13 Navy officers, chiefs and petty officers. They left Kansas and arrived here about 60 hours later after stops in Ireland, Kyrgyzstan, Kabul and Bagram. They looked bright eyed and ready to roll. Our team took about 10 days to get here due to in-processing in Kabul that will be done here for the new team. They'll have a chance to settle in, then we will take them to the hospital in a couple of days. Home in less than 4 weeks now.
Shown is our last full moon here at Camp Stone about a week ago. I thought it was a nice shot. We get pretty clear skies here and can see the Milky Way in the late evening.
