I think we are out of control here in Bagram!


Well, as if I dont have enough going on here in good old Afghanistan with work, work, more work. Then there is the Bagram RC Club stuff, playin trucks and flyin planes on occasion. So when the Chaplain asked, a few of us decided to help out our good old ex Army Ranger Chaplain (Yeah I know, no such thing as an "EX Ranger") and build him a new office next to our office.

So, one thing led to another, and now the Chaplain will have a 2nd story office with a coffee shop/MWR area under it and a huge 2nd floor deck! We dont go halfway on anything apparently.

Yeah, they are workin on getting coffee makers, popcorn machine, cappachino maker, refrigerators, freezers, nice furniture, TVs etc... all in there. They even want to make pancakes on Sundays for everyone. It will be great to have a nice place, run by us to hang out for a few.

Of course the entire thing will be volunteers and donations from folks here and in the States. We are just supplying the "know how" and labor to make it happen.

Besides, you cant say "NO" to a Chaplain! They will put a curse on you or somthing right?

Thanks guys. Its a work in progress. What you see is about 2 weeks worth of work. We get a ton done in a few hours, but we only get a few hours every couple of days. So, its slow going.

My goal is to have the outside 95% done before I go on leave in 9 days. We'll see if I get the time or not. I'd like to do the electrical before I go too.

Thats cool. I used to work for MWR in Ingleside , Texas before BRAC got us. Thanks for all you guys do for us over there. If you guys need anything give me a shout, they are closing things up around the base, you might get a big score!!

Wow looks great, good job.

Arenít you on a temporary air base?
When you guys finally leave do you have to tear it down or do the Afghans get to enjoy it?

LOL, thanks guys. I just hope I can get most of this thing done before I go on leave. Seems "real work" keeps getting in the way of my side projects!

"Is there anything I cant do??" Yes.
