A Year Ago
I was in Herat on Thanksgiving. Actually I spent the day in a helicopter (Russian Mi-17) between Herat and Khandahar. Had MRE's for lunch on the ramp at Herat, and flew into Khandahar for dinner. Of course, by the time we go to there, I had a migraine of epic proportions. I went to the DFAC (Dining Hall) and got food, which looked great, but could not eat.
This year...home for Thanksgiving. No helicopters, no migraine. The family together....much more relaxing. The food was good too.
What a difference a year makes.
