Once you are issued a weapon you never let it leave your sight. Since our plane was delayed we are all sleeping in a large Hall with your cloths on. We have recliners, cots, and sleeping bags. You sleep with your weapon. It’s not a lot of fun. Once we were processed our bags were checked and we were placed in lockdown. We are presentlly awaiting our jet, which is about 48 hours behind schedule. You can imagine all of the strange noices at night with over 250 people. I’m learning a lot from the other soldiers and the private contractors. You are thankful these guys and women are on our side. There are 10 large screen TV’s here. Since it was Saturday most everyone was watching college football. The catfish we had for dinner was very good. We are all praying the jet shows up as planned tomorrow. There are 9 medicalrofessionals here. The others treat us very well. I don’t know when I’ll have access again. The flight and the stop for fuel and time loss can take at least 20 hours. That’s 4 days in the same clothes. You are only allowed one small carry on, and the 4 duffle bags are locked up. Talk to you soon.
