So sad to hear of Robin Williams death today. It is ironic that it comes when I am in uniform with the military right now. It was during a USO tour stop at Camp Arifjan, in Kuwait where I met him as a public affairs escort. He was a very funny man and a big supporter of the troops. He will be missed. These were taken in Dec 2007

SATURDAY, MAY 10TH  AND SUNDAY, MAY 11TH – PERFORMANCE IN KUWAIT AND FLIGHT HOME:   Got in bed at 5:30 am and was up at 9:30 am.  Planned to have breakfast, work out in the gym, shower, pack and take a nap before going to Camp Arifjan for the final performance.   All worked well except for the “nap” part.  Somehow that didn’t work out for me this entire tour!   Last show is at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.  That’s always a big crowd.  We depart immediately after the autograph session for our flight back to Nashville.  So strange not to have a cell phone and any “link” with home once I get away from my laptop and internet service.  L   We left the hotel at 3 pm and arrived at Camp Arifjan at 4 pm for a quick sound check.  There were already people in line and had been since 1 pm!  It’s a small theatre, so I’m sure it will be packed.  We met the person who is taking Tina’s position at MWR and also got to say hello to Tina.  Really like the new lady!  We opted to walk over to C ...

Finally did some digging and found this write up.. Army Reserve Troops Bridge Tigris River for Marines By Sgt. Frank N. Pellegrini U.S. Army Reserve Public Affairs BAGHDAD, IRAQ -- It had been almost three weeks since we gave up on the Army Reserve's 459th Multi-Role Bridging Company ever building a bridge. We were a four-man team of Army Reserve journalists after the stories of fellow reservists supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom in all the ways reservists do, from fuel to mail to psychological operations to civil affairs and beyond. The Bridgeport, West. Va.-based 459th Army reservists included teachers, students, construction workers, pharmaceutical salesmen and many other type workers. From Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, their job in Iraq was to build a bridge for war fighters to cross on their march north. We’d been with them when they “crossed the berm” from Kuwait into Iraq March 21st and began hauling their 89-vehicle convoy up north into the war. We were with them as they followed Ma ...

More than 250 Servicemembers participated the Camp Arifjan Bataan Death March held March 29 at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. Among the hundreds of servicemember Staff Sgt. Aaron West, 108th Special Troops Battalion completed the 26.2-mile course in roughly five hours and two minutes. Of the top 10 finishers, seven were of the 108th Sustainment Brigade, Illinois National Guard. The actual Bataan Death March, which began on April 9, 1942, was the forcible transfer of 60,000 to 80,000 Filipino and American prisoners of war by the Imperial Japanese Army after the three-month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II. Approximately 2,500 to 10,000 Filipino and 100 to 650 American prisoners of war died during the 80-mile route before they could reach their destination at Camp O'Donnell. Every year servicemembers and veterans march in memorial events in honor of the servicemembers who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II. Photos by Staff Sgt. Michael Camacho, 108th Sustainment Brigade

CAMP ARIFJAN, KUWAIT - Soldiers of the 1021st Engineer Company, 2nd Plt., received a certificate of appreciation from Col. Robert Arrington, OIC for MCE-Kuwait. These Guardsmen were recognized for their direct support of the Marine Corps and Operation Enduring Freedom. Their exemplary support and extraordinary subject matter expertise facilitated the repair of an otherwise destroyed Marine Corps Mobile Armory. These Soldiers played a crucial role in the repair of this strategic asset. The requirements were over 814 cumulative man hours of labor which provided a direct cost savings to the Marine Corps of over $35,000. (US Army Photo by: Spc. Christopher Foster )

Historically, average rainfall observed in the month of November is 0.7 inches of rain. The max observed rainfall in the month of November is 4.5 inches of rain. On Nov. 20, 0.2 inches of rain brought the total to 3.7 inches, which makes this the most rainfall in one day since

Thunder Families - as I'm sure some of you have heard by now, the last 24 hours in Kuwait has brought some of the most significant rain fall Kuwait has seen in a long time. Much of the flooding occured at Camp Arifjan but please know that all Task Force Thunder Soldiers are safe (though maybe a bit wet!) and working through the challenging weather conditions. Soldiers' connectivity and ability to get in touch with you might be limited over the next couple of days so please be patient if you don't hear from them as you normally would. Thanks - Rolling Thunder! Thunder Command Team

Wel I did my good deed for the day. There has been a litter of stray puppies under the deck at the place I'm working in. They cry for their momma every day while she is out foraging for enough food so she can nurse her four little pups. Today was the first really hard day of rain we have had. They had been howling all day because they had been getting drenched with nowhere to go for a break from the water. They were literally surrounded on all sides. I finally had enough, and tried to find the proper contact info for the animal control on Camp Arifjan. Well after getting the run around for about an hour, I finally told my leadership I was about to crawl under the deck to retrieve the pups, so they ended up prying up some of the boards so that i could reach under and grab all of them. As I'm doing this some of the other guys are having to shoo off the momma. No one really wants a dog bite. Especially not knowing what diseases the dog might have. So to cut this long story short; I got the puppies out safely ...

Here is another good article by Michelle Tan in this weeks Army Times that provides a good look at what our mission entails: Army quick-response forces stood up around the world Each regional Army command has created a contingency response force which can secure a U.S. Embassy or evacuate Americans. They can supply humanitarian aid or fight, all within 18 to 24 hours. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno last year directed the Army Service Component Commands to designate Army emergency quick-response forces that are “rapidly deployable to a permissive or semi-permissive environment,” said Lt. Col. Don Peters, an Army spokesman. That means these soldiers could be deployed to a place where the host country’s military and law enforcement are in control and able to help, or they could be called upon to respond to an attack like the one last September in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. They must be able to perform a variety of tasks, as needed, including site security, non-combatant evacuati ...

Finally this move is over, Camp Arifjan *** I am not looking forward to the next 6 months.
Things I have been interrogated for while here at Camp Arifjan Kuwait: 1- Why do you have weapons and ammo, Answer- because POG our unit actually does something other then push papers retard. Such as the SECFOR for the country. 2- why don't you have a working cell phone. Answer- 1: see previous, and 2: why would they give issue an E5 a office cell phone when I don't work in an office, and todays question of the day, why didn't I have the laundry workers inventory my junk. Answer- I generally trust them to get me all my junk back and on occasion someone else's, and truthfully I don't feel like wasting my time doing it anyway when it would just be easier to replace. I've HAD bought ALL my ACU's since I was a boot camp private so why should I care if I have to buy 1 more set because they got lost.

Sure, trust our government. This on how a Nation of Laws and a transparent democracy chooses to deal with a citizen?? Is this not a conscious effort to torture this young hero? In June 2010, several weeks before any charges were actually filed against him and about 2 weeks into his detention at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, Bradley Manning, the 22-year-old Army private ACCUSED of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, was taken from the air-conditioned tent where he'd been living, barracks-style with a handful of other inmates, AND PLACED IN A CAGE. NO explanation was given then or now; the reasons for this caging, which occurred several weeks BEFORE any charges were filed against him, still remain unclear. He would spend more than a MONTH in this contraption; an 8-by-8-foot cube made of steel grid panels and equipped with a bunk, stainless-steel sink and an attached toilet.

Tomorrow CBS 21’s Brandie Meng and Photojournalist David Oliver will leave for Kuwait. The two will be visiting PA National Guard Soldiers who are staying at Camp Arifjan just south of Kuwait City. Several area residents have family or friends there and Brandie and David will be working on stories about what life is like deployed. You can follow their journey on our website at cbs21.com! Do you have any questions about modern day deployments?
Completed a rewarding year as the Sams planner for the 32d Army Air and Missile Defense Command. During my tenure we expanded the operational reach of US Patriot Units, deploying Patriot to Turkey, the first ever operational deployment of THAAD to Guam, and Patriot to Jordan. Through cross service coordination and numerous joint and coalition exercises we developed innovative tactics in support of defense missions. We also developed and codified a 5 year campaign plan that paves the road for continued success. I will be headed for ARCENT HQs at Camp Arifjan this week as my new role as the TAAMDCORD for the 32d AAMDC. I would like to thank my family, friends, and fellow soldiers - and planners; the long hours and sacrifices don't go unnoticed as you work complex problems and missions behind the scenes to make units successful in any endeavor.

Happy 238th Birthday to the members of the US Army from the US Navy. As a Sailor serving under Pattons 3rd Army at Camp Arifjan special kudos to my friends from 3rd Army. It is only fitting that we celebrate Flag Day today and that "John Paul Jones was assigned the newly constructed USS Ranger, on June 14, 1777 (the same day the new Stars and Stripes flag was adopted). An even better reason for Sailors to fly the First Navy Jack today!
Today we celebrated the U.S Army's 238th Birthday at Camp Arifjan, KU. This year my battle SPC Guevara was the Units Youngest soldier for the THIRD TIME!! For more photos click on the link below!

Assange Statement on the First Day of Manning Trial Monday 3rd June 2013, 22:00 GMT Statement by Julian AssangeAs I type these lines, on June 3, 2013, Private First Class Bradley Edward Manning is being tried in a sequestered room at Fort Meade, Maryland, for the alleged crime of telling the truth. The court martial of the most prominent political prisoner in modern US history has now, finally, begun.It has been three years. Bradley Manning, then 22 years old, was arrested in Baghdad on May 26, 2010. He was shipped to Kuwait, placed into a cage, and kept in the sweltering heat of Camp Arifjan."For me, I stopped keeping track," he told the court last November. "I didn’t know whether night was day or day was night. And my world became very, very small. It became these cages... I remember thinking I’m going to die."After protests from his lawyers, Bradley Manning was then transferred to a brig at a US Marine Corps Base in Quantico, VA, where - infamously - he was subjected to cruel, inhuman and degrading ...
Thank you to all my new followers here! Let's see where we all live. Where are you from?

Clearing an Army post is always humorous. I have a three page list of places to visit that I haven't seen since I got here. And, in the paperless Army, they all need a copy of my orders. Really? Why does the library need a copy of my orders? I think most of these places just ask because they have nothing else to prove your were ever there.

My first week has passed and it's been exhausting. Transfer of authority ceremony may be moved to this Thurs, June 13. The weather has been averaging 116ish high with 35 mph winds today. Sand gets into everything. Still, I'm enjoying the anticipation of the new experiences and challenges that lay ahead.
Had a long day and it's only 1340. I think I'm just gonna lay it down until the game tonight.
A Memorial Day of Hope Serving as an Army chaplain gave one cantor a new view of the holiday, and a belief in a brighter future By David Frommer|May 24, 2013 12:00 AM|5comments PrintEmail The author at the Camp Buehring memorial. (Courtesy of the author) Davening for Doughnuts Most soldiers in Basic Training attend services just for the snacks. The lemonade was good, but it was the Torah that kept me coming back. By Jake Kohlman One year ago this month, I gazed out the window of a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, lifting off from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. I was a third of the way through my first overseas deployment as a U.S. Army chaplain, and the novelty was definitely wearing thin. The training and anticipation during my nine-week pre-deployment mobilization at Camp Shelby, Miss., had rolled into an exhilarating first month in Afghanistan, but now I had landed in Kuwait, where the mission was a little less immediate. I didn’t have time to think about it as I struggled to learn the layout of a sprawling, unfam ...
One more night in Kansas and then on to Kuwait for a year. Army Central Command and Camp Arifjan won't know what hit them! As my good friend Rick Whitney said at church on Sunday "Endings are a time for thanksgiving and beginnings are a time for faith." I give great thanks to God for His wonderful providence over the last two years in so many areas. Great friends, great people to work with, great church, nice area and fun fishing. I've truly enjoyed Kansas. I'm also so grateful that Diane and Elizabeth will have such a wonderful support network here in Kansas while I'm away. I look forward to the next year in the Desert Kingdom of Kuwait to labor vigorously in the work that God has given me to do. Please pray for there to be many opportunities for me to "drip Jesus" on anyone who is open so that they may know the same joy and peace that I do.
Story and Photos by Sgt.1st Class Teresa L. Adams   CAMP ARIFJAN, Kuwait—With a combined total of 60 years of service, two former reserve component sergeants major are currently serving as chaplains and both are deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. Of the Soldiers who enlist in the Army, very few reach the rank of sergeant major. In the history of the Army only two sergeants major have become chaplains.   The life of a noncommissioned officer is very different from that of a commissioned officer. These men rose to the challenge by successfully bridging the gap between their enlisted careers and becoming chaplains.   Maj. James A. Freitag, an Army Reserve component chaplain assigned to the 122nd Chaplain’s Detachment, Seagoville, Texas, is deployed as the operations chaplain for Area Support Group Kuwait. He joined the military as a Marine in 1976 and continued his career by enlisting in the Army Reserve.   Freitag attended the Sergeants Major Academy, class 51 ...
Good afternoon. This is Cantor Bernstein from PTBAS. Did you know that around 17.5 million sufganiot, jelly doughnuts, are eaten in Israel during Chanukah? What a lot of oil! At Shabbat Chanukah services in the social hall this evening, we will light Chanukah and Shabbat candles and our temple choir will lead us in joyous song. At tomorrow morning's service, the haftarah contains the stirring words of the prophet Zechariah, "Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit." May the lights of Chanukah continue to inspire us and gladden our hearts! Shabbat Shalom, and Happy Chanukah Cantor Suzanne Bernstein Spiritual Leader Progressive Temple Beth Ahavath Sholom 1515 46th Street Brooklyn, NY 11219 Below: Chanukah at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait. Chaplain Cantor David Frommer is kneeling, second from left. Our Chanukah care package got to Kuwait in time for the celebration!
Today marks my 10th year anniversary of being in the US Army. 10 years ago, I was shipped off to Basic Training at Fort Jackson, SC and my life has never been the same, Praise Jesus. In the past 10 years, I've deployed four times; been stationed at Fort Bragg twice; Fort Detrick, MD; and Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. I've been to 9 different countries, my job has taken me to 16 States and I couldn't count how many friends I've made over these 10 years. 10 years has passed so quickly, so . 10 years down, at least 10 more to go! God has been certainly GREAT to me!
