Durring the entire month of May 01 I deployed in support of a Joint exercise - here are some of the photos.

Captions from left to right:  1)  Nice view of the facilities (Click on photos to see enlargement).  2)  My humble abode (see the bars out front).  3)  Can you say chow?  4)  ECP  5)  Not all tough duty (unfortunately our 13 hr shift covers the entire open hours of the pool).  6)  Check out the chow.



I got to enjoy a bit of water polo - great fun and exercise.

I did get an upgrade to a hard billet.  Not much in luxuries - but it was a step towards civilization.  This is the same room looking each way.  I shared it with 5 others.  We had a day shift and a night shift - so you couldn't go in the room during the day since the night shift was sleeping.
