If it wasn't so serious, it would be hilarious. I laughed out loud then and I do again. In 03, I walked about a mile to the MKT (mobile kitchen trailer) for dinner in the Iraqi desert (outside). We wore scarfs as the moon dust was so fine it was like talcum powder. Then a Hummer or truck would go by and you would take a deep breath and turn away until the big cloud of dust would blow over you. While trying to eat a fellow Soldier put her plate on the raised makeshift table (we ate standing up) and went to get her drink. The wind (and dust) picked up and blew her dinner away. She came back and it was gone. You had to hold on to your plate and eat with your other hand. The trick was to get your drink after you ate on your way out.

Anyway, I get back to the CP and AFN (Armed Forces Network) radio is on and has a message on "this time around, Gulf vets will not have to worry about contaminates in the soil, as we have taken six (yes six) soil samples and they were all clean of any toxins" or something like that. I laughed so loud. I wish I would have recorded it back then.
