Below are some cool photos of Camp Virginia, Kuwait. Of all the camps I stayed at during the war, I kept visiting this one the most. Out in the middle of nowhere with nothing but flat sand for a landscape, you could see for miles upon miles all around it. The herds of camels were quite a sight.
Below is a gallery of my base during the Iraq War in 2004. Camp Anaconda is located approximately 35-40 miles north of Baghdad and was once Saddam International Airport. I spent most of my tour of duty there repairing helicopters. Some highlights include dust devils, mortars, and needed smuggled booze.

Below is a gallery of some desert critters. Some were friendly... others not so much.
Below is a gallery created by a local Montana artist, Melissa Benson, her statement protesting the war in Iraq. She contacted me shortly after I returned from the desert and I agreed to participate. She's a remarkable artist.
