Trip back

Just a couple of shots from the chopper ride back to Taji.

Sunset in the chopper.

Ah sunset in the city. Only one refuse fire burning in the distance, which cut down on the normally oppressive haze. It’s very rare to have more than a couple of miles of visibility because of all the blasted haze in the air.

Oh hey, friend!

Oh hey, friend!



Scenes from the city.

Landfill living.

Landfill living.

Mmmmm. The only thing better than living next to a landfill is living IN the landfill. Huts spring up even in the midst of the muck.


About salemonz

Born in San Diego, Calif. Raised as a Navy Brat, I jumped ship and crossed over to the Army. Served as an enlisted journalist for a bunch of years, then helped the DoD figure out what the hell to do with social media. After the Army, now I drift down the river of life, trying not to be a jerk.
