Orgun-e…then and now

As I was clicking through various links I found this site which had this photo about the Forward Operating Base at Orgun-e. I was there (well, for a day) in late 2003 and it was primitive.  A whole lot of nothing.  I remember tubes sunk into the ground that you’d urinate into.  Today it seems to have showers and a morale tent which must be a huge morale booster.

Ooof…memories of turning green from a three hour (or did it just seem that long) ride in a CH-47.  The best part of that trip was when it ended.

  1. that second photo is pretty freaking sweet… but not enough to make me want to go to Afghanistan.
