December 25 1640

I'm not sure why anyone would hang their stockings on a bomb shelter but it looks nice and makes things feel a little festive at BAF. Live music on Christmas day provided by an Air Force band as well as special meals served at the DEFAC. I watch soldiers leaving on patrol at 7 in the evening, in freezing temperatures and it reminds me that the war does not stop for holidays. To the contrary, it is a popular time for Taliban rocket attacks as was the case here.
