Yes, we did but it was short. He said he thought they were about to get cut
off again and he wasn't hitting send as fast as he could. Haven't heard
from him since, so I guess they have shut down the messages which means
someone in their area was KIA.
BTW, as I understand it, unless they are a photo op group, the meals in Iraq
and Afghanistan are way below standard!
One of the folks who was in charge of one of the kitchen set up by
Halliburton was an HSU graduate and from our old stomping grounds. She was
fired because she refused to use mayo and some other products that had been
left out in the heat for days. Needless to say, leaving a jar of mayo out
in 110 degree heat does NOT make for a great product to use in making
sandwiches! Also, some of the stuff actually said "must refrigerate" and it
was left out in the heat.
