There are three types of combat orders in the Army. There's the Warning Order (WARNO) that gives you basic info that something's coming up. There's the Operation Order (OPORD) that details the plan out. And then there's the Fragmentary Order (FRAGO).
FRAGOs are what are issued when there is a change to the plan. In fact, stuff changes so much in the Army that that is what we pretty much run off of 24/7. Well, transportation to the 'stan is no different. Long story short, I'm still stuck in Germany. I may be stuck here for a while waiting to catch a plane. Could be worse I guess. I'll tell you what...these Air Force people know how to live. I guess I can rough it out here waiting for a ride.
So, anyway, here's some more pictures from Germany....
This was some kind of cargo ship on some river in Germany. These ships are really short and wide. The bridges here aren't very tall over the water for some reason.
I knew everything would be alright when I saw this.
This was a little village between Hanau and Rhine Ordinance Barracks here in Kaiserslautern. The whole trip here was like this. Hundreds and hundreds of acres of neatly kept farmland with little villages scattered throughout.
They have windmills all over the countryside generating electricity. These things are huge. They are probably 200 feet tall.
This is a little Christmas shop here on post at Ramstein. I couldn't afford anything in there and couldn't afford to ship it back to the States if I could. Cool stuff like cuckoo clocks and handmade ornaments.
I'll blog some more if I get a minute.
