120 Degrees In The Shade

"Today I saw a temperature gauge that was hanging in the shade. The gauge only measured up to 120 degrees and the mercury had pegged out at the top."

The Soldier describes the unbelievable heat at LSA Anaconda in Iraq. Now I understand why he lost over 20 pounds in his first six months in Iraq.

The encouraging news is that the unit that will replace his group has been identified, which gives him more reason to hope he will depart Iraq near the scheduled end of his tour in late December.
