From Rags To Riches

Nick's new home
Even a real bed and curtains...impressive!!!

Wow, I'm amazed at the difference between the last deployment and this one. FOB Delta seems to have MUCH better accomodations than FOB Hammer did. Compared to FOB Hammer, FOB Delta is the Ritz Carlton. It was so nice to get pictures today and see that the living conditions are much better than the ones that the Soldiers had when they first arrived at FOB Hammer.

In country less than a week and it's already starting to look like home. The old saying, a picture is worth a thousand words certainly holds true. Now I can visualize where Nick is and doesn't seem quite so gloomy now. Getting these pictures today was the highlight of the day. All seems to be going well and now they can get settled in and get on with the mission at hand.

I would hope that with housing accomodations this nice that they will also be able to enjoy other amneties as well. I'm so impressed...Nick has gone from "Rags to Riches".

THEN...FOB Hammer

NOW...FOB Delta...Much better!!!
