The ships are heading back but the army guys are still there. They are a little annoyed that they aren’t being put to more use but there are a lot of people there to help. That includes many people there to try and make a buck in the process. Nothing out of the ordinary though, just hard working contractors looking to help out with their skills for a reasonable price.
My father-in-law said that it’s been pretty crazy though. A war zone without the bullet holes seems to be one of the best descriptions. His only complaint right now are the cold showers he has to take because they don’t (or didn’t, it’s been a couple days) have hot water. Hehe. I guess with the temperature in the high 30s, most of them don’t really mind the cold showers too much.
