It takes a special person to like the desert.
The 450 sq mi of Chihuahuan Desert that was the Ft. Bliss reservation back then was golden for me and my family.
We spent lots of time in the desert enjoying the different aspects of it. If you are not a desert person it must be a bad nightmare
and I feel for you as the desert isn't for everyone. I had a hard time when I was transferred from there back to the East coast with all the trees, grass, and foliage. Wow, different strokes for different folks
I hope you get some good PCS orders and are able to rotate out.
