Some Snippett's From Afghan-Land

 
My cute Mr. Superman with one of his buddies he works with at Line D back at Moody. This was at one of the many stops on their way to The Sandbox.

 
My husband who likes to slouch with one of his friends from BMT. He's stationed at Aviano in Italy but just got deployed to the same place as Mr. Superman. His friend is in the AF but works with the Army. Mr. Superman just happens to live at the same place as the Army. The military makes the world seem so much smaller. I'm glad he got to have an hour or two of break time from war thoughts.

 
One of the areas Mr. Superman works at has these concrete barrier walls. Every base who has ever been deployed there, gets a mural on one of the walls. This is Mr. Superman's favorite and was done when Davis Mothan AFB from Tucson was there.

 
This is the French PX where Mr. Superman tells me all they sell is pastries and cheap cigarettes. Yep, sounds like the French ;)

 
The lovely little chapel he is so blessed to be able to attend church at.

 
Okay now this is sad but I have to be honest that I find it humorous as well. This is on a concrete wall Mr. Superman passes by every day. If you look close you'll see the normal drawings of a little girl. A sun with a smile, a butterfly, clouds, peace signs, and a flower. Also take note there is a cave with fire, a soldier with a gun (and a smile no less), standing over a dead man in a pool of blood. Nice right?

The mural is beautiful!! The military is definitely a very small world :) I'm sure he is happy to have a friend close.

What made me laugh the hardest is when you said he likes to slouch. OccDoc sent me some photos and I told him if he continued to stand like a humpback he'd get a humpback. I also told him I was going to make him cry during his first post-deployment massage when I correct his posture. I'm glad to see my husband isn't the only sloucher.

Thanks for sharing! These are great pics, and I have to say as sad as it may be, I find that picture a little humorous as well.

Hi love! So sorry I haven't been such a great follower so don't mind that my replies will be backwards in time.

Anyways so happy he's doing ok out there! It's tough but I know heavenly father is watching over him (and you). I'm making sure ;) jk

It's good to see that he's doing well! It must be nice to have extra friends already there. The military really is such a small world.

And that last picture just breaks my heart for the little girl. It's so sad to think that is her "normal," you know? We're so lucky to have grown up where we did.
