My replacement just arrived! He has the same look I had when I got here – dazed and confused. I gave him the standard speech. Namely, he should expect to take one day for every hour of time difference in order to adjust. He's coming from Ft. Bliss, Texas, and that's 10 hours behind. He's been in country for 4 days, so he's got about another week before he gets right. Hopefully I'll be gone before that happens.
For now, I'll leave you with more interesting soldier last names I've encountered recently.
And my favorite…
