I got a call from Gunnar last week. We've been talking about once or twice a week lately which is wonderful. If I haven't heard from him for a few days, I know a call will be coming soon, and it usually does. He usually gives me a brief rundown of what he and his platoon have been up to (the new COP is mostly built now, and he's been doing lots of night patrols and still training the Afghan Nat'l Police), then I tell him crazy stories about our crazy kids and he laughs his ass off. Well, last week he tells me he had a bit of trouble going over a wall to get into the city.
The headache is now gone, and he is back to business as usual. As if there is anything normal about what they're doing over there.
