My son-in-law got word yesterday that he is being deployed to the mid-east in about one week. He will be going to an Air Force Base near Kuwait City, Kuwait. It is not Iraq but still a sensitive region, just 39 miles from the Iraq border. We looked up a site that describes the base. It is in one of the hottest (climate wise) areas in the world. Daytime temps, year round, rarely go under 120 degrees. The base is a tent city, no luxury. He served one tour in Iraq about a year ago and received many awards, commendations and an early promotion for his accomplishments. Our daughter picked a good one for her husband and we are proud of them both.
