Essential Oils can Relieve Disease (Part 1)

Most prevalent in my world are the Soldiers and Airmen that are getting complacent and losing focus here and beginning to get into more trouble.  Typically on any deployment we see a spike in military justice actions early on at about the 3 month mark and then at the end when we have about 60 days left in theatre.

As we begin to approach that mark, we have seen our workload steadily increase.  Most of the Soldier issues stem from losing military bearing and disrespecting officers and non-commissioned officers, failing to show up on time for work, and fighting with other Soldiers.

The extreme heat and poor living conditions are also contributing to this.  Most of our Soldiers are still residing in large tents with 30-40 of their “closest” friends and the temperatures have been exceeding 110-115 degrees every day.  There’s a bit of a break in the heat at night, when we will see a drop to about 85-90.  However, the hottest days are yet to come.  We are expecting the temps to top 130 in the next month.  It will be miserable to say the least.

It’s especially important that this generation, and future generations, understand that Memorial Day is not just about the barbecue, and that they appreciate the significance of the day.

Many will visit graves and cemeteries, and attend memorial ceremonies today all across the country. But most will not.
My young cousin Paul Cope is in Afghanistan right now. He periodically sends out a little newsletter to friends and family about what’s going on. He has given me permission to share his latest post with you today.  I hope this finds you all in good health and great spirits.

As the subject line indicates, we have now surpassed the century mark, meaning we now have less than 100 days left in country.  We have started receiving information about the unit that will be replacing us, meeting with their representatives, and started making plans to demobilize and go home!  With that comes a new set of challenges and opportunities.

Cooking With Lavender: My Favorite Lavender Pound Cake

At this point you can leave the pound cake plain, or add a glaze.

For this particular cake I sliced strawberries into lavender simple syrup, crushing a few to release the juices and letting them sit and steep all day, absorbing all that goodness! The addition of the lavender simple syrup just really takes the berries over the top and is delicious on the cake! (Also wonderful on homemade vanilla ice cream, or with angel food cake!)

As always, we’re proud to be here serving the United States, but at this point, I think we’re all ready for a break.  Thank you all for your continued support and kindness.  The letters, emails, and care packages have been overwhelming and much appreciated.

I thought you might enjoy his personal account. God willing, he will be coming home safely in less than 100 days.

But for the thousands who did not make it home, for the thousands who have died in service to our country, for the thousands who have died for our freedom, I hope you will pause at 3:00 as part of The National Moment of Remembrance Act and remember.

Anti-Cholesterol Foods

This week, I’m attending a training course at another base.  The accommodations here are amazing compared to what we’ve been living up north.  There’s even a swimming pool!  The training should be good and it’s a nice break from the normal routine.

The training is an advanced course on anti-terrorism and force protection.  A lot of it is a study into previous terrorist attacks on US assets so that we can attempt to avoid repeating our past mistakes.  It also delves into the planning of construction of new facilities, upgrading old facilities, and establishing checkpoints, entry control points, and other critical infrastructure.

It so far has been fascinating and I feel like it is one of the most beneficial courses I’ve attended.  In fact, I’m sitting in the class, awaiting the results of the final exam, as I type this email.

Haboobs on the other hand, are short, high intensity sandstorms.  They pop up quickly and usually only last a day or so.  However, we’ve been having those on a nightly basis for the last couple of days.

The visibility in either type of storm will usually drop to less than 100 meters and the air quality becomes horrible, making it difficult to breathe when outside.  You can draw parallels between these and the dust storms in Western Kansas, but times 100.
