When I was in Iraq, I too had a hard time getting the servers to understand what I meant by a little so I started using hand and finger signals to illustrate what I meant. It took me about three days until they knew what I meant and I didn't have to ask anymore.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, margarita in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally wornout and screaming, "WOO HOO!! What a Ride!!!

Freedom is the difference between living and just existing!!

Hello!!

I wish you a speedy and safe return. I am also sorry that you are over there. If we (First Gulf War) would have/ could have done our job right the first time, you wouldn't of ever had to go over to that hell hole. I pray that with this new President, you don't get left out there without ammo and supplies.

God watch over you and keep everyone safe!

WHEN THEY PILE YOUR PLATE FULL OF SOMETHING YOU ONLY WANT A LITTLE OF YOU SHOULD STOP BY TRASH AND DUMP 1/2 OF IT BEFORE YOU EVEN SIT DOWN TO EAT. WHEN I EAT OUT I ALWAYS ASK FOR A TO GO BOX AND PUT AT LEAST HALF MY MEAL IN IT BEFORE I TAKE A BITE.

I think the hardest part about trying to lose weight here is that there is no variety in what we get to eat. Monday is spaghetti, Tuesday is tacos, Wednesday is soul food, Friday is surf and turf. It is never a surprise to go into the chowhall. Thankfully they have a salad bar at both lunch and dinner otherwise all I would be able to eat is unhealthy fried or starchy foods.

Plus the servers don't really understand English so when you tell them just alittle bit they pile it on. And once it's on your plate it's hard not to eat it. It's such a temptation.

But I will survive, and plus I have plenty of time to hit the gym or go run on our 7.56 mile track around post. I just want something new and different.

Hi everybody-
Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sara, I am medic for the Army currently deployed to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Just over a year ago I returned from Iraq, and I'm hoping this is my last tour overseas. I have struggled with the army's "tape" standards for years, but I'm hoping that SP will be just the motivation that I need.
