Safe in Kuwait

Hey everyone, well I'm here in Kuwait, man what a flight!! We left from Wa in the middle of the night. We flew east over the U.S. then to Shannon Ireland we were only there for a few minutes so I didn't get any pictures. It was cool that I can say I was kinda there, then from there we went straight to Kuwait. Total time was about 13 hours not to bad. We got here early in the morning, and ate breakfast at the first base we went to, from there we traveled another hour to the base that we stay on for now. The weather has been tolerable, not to hot, not to cold. The tents we stay in have a heater in them so at night when it's really cold we just turn the heat on. We sleep in sleeping bags, on cots. It's ok, I'm safe so that's whats important. I've heard that everything at Lindsey's baby shower went well, thanks to her Aunt Pam, I was able to see some pictures from the shower. I can't tell you guys when I'm leaving Kuwait, and were I'm going because of OPSEC. Once I get there I will let you guys know how everything is and what I can tell you. For those of you that don't have my mailing address you will have to get ahold of Lindsey, or my mom. Well thanks for checking on the blog, talk to you soon.

stay tuned

where we live

Hi Brian,

Great pictures! I'm glad you all made it safe, of course I already knew that, I talked to you on the phone.:)
Continue to stay safe, and know that we are all thinking of you every day. Lindsey and I will be mailing you a care/Christmas package soon.

Love you, Mom Boldrin

Hey Brian ... nice to see the pictures and read your update. It was great to see Lindsey and hold Christian - looking forward to more time with them on Christmas. Jerry, Mike, and all the boys retreated to Shorebrook during the baby shower - too bad the Seahawks lost. The shower was fun - and not just because I won one of the games!

What's up Brian! Happy to see your doing fine. Seahawks smoked the Ravens yesterday! I can't wait to play Dallas, Romo's going down! I hope you brought a deck of cards with you to pass time during the relaxing period, if not let us know and we'll send you one. Keep safe and Merry Christmas. Talk to you soon.
