Here is Nicki, an OR Doc at Bastion Hospital in Afghanistan, with her new guitar. She wrote me that she likes it a lot and plays it when she has time, and when others in the OR are not fooling around with it.
This is a photo of Nicki preparing for an everyday 'picnic' of MREs. If things aren't bad enough in the 'Stan, they get to eat packaged meals on a regular basis. And we hear people complain stateside about their own personal crap!
