Taking a helicopter ride to a Forward Operating Base. This is a pic from my point and shoot. You can see the conditions down there.
This was the first pic on the ground there. The second helo in the distance really isn't that far away. This was the dust storm that forced us to this Combat Outpost, instead of the FOB we were supposed to visit.
The next morning we were at the FOB. This was a pic taken while waiting to take off for Kandahar. The HUMVEE on the right was the fire truck. One each fire extinguisher and an axe on the back. Primitive at best. Good times!!
