Anbar Province, Al Asad

Arrived in Anbar Province via C-17 a few days ago. Al Asad is a large airbase built by Yugoslavia during the Iran-Iraq war. The perimeter of the base is around 25 miles, and I have only seen a fraction so far.
Still trying to acclimate to this part of the world. Last night was the first night I have slept since I got here, so things are looking up now!

Glad you finally got some rest. Hope you're not sleeping in a tent. If you are, who knows were you would wake up with sand at.

Carl, God bless you, my friend! It's good to get a first hand update from you. Although, your Dad is doing a *wonderful* job keeping us all posted when you call.
That sleep thing can really mess a person up. Hopefully you are over that hump now?
On Christ the solid rock we stand, all other ground is sinking sand... there's a vivid word picture for ya'
Patrick and I are praying for you.

Godspeed. Be safe and know that there are lots of Americans who thank you for your service and support you. Don't be fooled by what the media outlets report.
God Bless you and your family so that you can be reunited with them.
