he is no longer headed to Kuwait, but to Africa!!! He was chosen out of 700 Seabees and only two from the 700 are going...Stilll dangerous, still gets combat pay, it is after all in the area where Black Hawk Down went down....
When I read of what they are doing there, I am bursting with pride!!
I am so excited...from what I heard, they are living more primitive than he would have in Kuwait....(they had barracks there, in Africa he is in a tent) but they are building schools and many humanitarian things there and the kids from what I understand just win your hearts over.
Big sigh of relief for me, and for his siblings who freak out whenever the news is on, of soldiers dying over in the sandbox.
