I tried to find informtion about Camp Lowell but, I wasn’t successful. He did send me a link from ABC News that shed a little light on the environment and living conditions. Although, my son is still in Afghanistan, he says he is in a better place and that is Bostick. I can ONLY hope he is safe nd stays that way until he comes home.

Our organization-Coquina Crossing Troop Support (part of Florida Veterans Programs & Projects, Inc) have been sending care packages to “our boys” there now for a year and a half. There are letters and pictures of them on our website. Thanks, Patty Worsham, coordinator

Grim pictures of shelling and austere conditions underlined the adverse conditions an American soldier has to face, unnecessarily. Well, let’s hope Obama will not let everybody down, and in good time.

It’s nice to see someone shed the “real” light on living conditions, daily life, and what amenities we all cherish here that they haven’t seen and will not see for months to come!

These people were caught in the cross fire of Russian weapons for years and now the United States.It is always the innocent “many” that must suffer for the dirty deeds of the “few”.

Stay safe over there. Great work. Were these images all with the Mark II prior to the puddle splash? I’ve got two words for every imbed not packing a 1d or D3: CAMERA ARMOR. The only catch is I’m not sure if they make it for the Mark II yet…
