SPC C and I were present for a joint exercise between our buddies and Soldiers from one of our coalition partners. I think some bigwig was supposed to show up, but never did.
So there they were, all dressed up, and nowhere to go.
Our coalition partners turned out to be a lot of fun. I tired quickly of trying to speak in a language I've never really studied, but once was able to 'get by' in.
Those guys certainly weren't above 'hamming it up' for the camera!
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
