As Dr. Eowyn wrote on November 2nd, my boyfriend Matthew deployed to Afghanistan. He’s been there two weeks now and we finally had the chance to Skype last night!
He’s getting settled into a new routine, albeit a long one. Twelve hour days, 6.5 days per week.
It’s not dramatically hot there yet, rather it’s cold and dusty. And he said the food at the cafeteria is rather good. And plenty of snacks to buy at the PX.
He’s sharing a room with just one roomie who has been in Afghanistan for 6 months. Matthew is the “new guy” at his job as most have been there for some time.
They are in a rather safe area, yet everyone is packing. And by “safe”, I mean they still have sirens warning of potential incoming threats.
Please continue to pray for him and all our soldiers in harm’s way!
