USMC Camp Lemonier, Djibouti.

A Containerized Living Unit. Spartan. 20 X 8 X 8. A desk, a twin bed, a few lockers. Books from home.

Bathroom nearby, in another container. About 200 yards from an active runway.

It is remarkable what a mollycoddled civilian can get used to after three months. At least I'm not getting shot at.

Well, from the picture alone, I can tell you it looks a lot nicer than many places I've spent years in. Enjoy.

Yes, it could be much worse.

Yeah, like watching Obama's infomercial. Be glad you've been spared that!
