Middle Earth and the Middle East

Now that I have arrived at my Forward Operating Base (FOB) I am known as a FOBBIT- someone at one of these little outposts that never leaves and is kindof isolated from the larger bases. Suits me fine. I have a great team of people I work with and we cared for our first patients today. It was an honor to provide care for the soldiers here, and I feel a clearer sense of purpose in my being here; I can't decide what armies of nations decide to do, but I can be here to help when people get hurt.

And even though I carry two firearms and live in a war zone, Jen still manages to kick more butt than I do. Way to go, Hon! They should unleash you on the Taliban and show 'em what Shock and Awe is all about!
