Due to the fact that I don’t know who is reading this blog, and I know that some wives of contractors are, I’m going to keep this one vague, deliberately.
I talked to a guy by the name of Robert, with Red Sea Housing, this afternoon. He was telling me that he’d just returned from another site where, overnight, there were 101 mortar attacks against the camp. Throughout the night there were firefights between the military and insurgents (believed to be Sunni). He returned at first light this morning, without incident, other than lost sleep.
I’m thankful that I’m not there, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the people that are there.
