I made it. I’m at Camp Victory, Baghdad, Iraq. Helluva place. Huge conglomeration of tents, trailers, and some real buildings scattered all over the place. There are three other camps, Slayer, Liberty and Stryker, but I can’t tell where one camp ends and the next one begins. Hard to make sense of this place. Gigantic PX at Liberty. Enough pouches and holsters and sheaths and tactical stuff to warm the cockles of the most covetous gear whore’s heart. Had ribs for Independence Day lunch at the Sports Oasis Dining Facility. Biggest chow hall I have ever seen in my life.
Probably be here about a week or so, then on to my final destination. I’m glad I made the trip.
