Old guard, new guard
Maj Bron Roeder and I at the school he and the Military Liaison shop at the Embassy have been helping with. Getting there was via armored SUVs in full gear (flak, helmet, ammo, etc.), but once there, we grounded our equipment in the vehicles, locked them up, and proceeded to tour the school with an interpreter and the principal. Kids everywhere, girls and boys, all ages. I didn't pick up on any weird atmospherics at all. We also delivered some school supplies that had come in from friends and family in the States; all was received with much thanks from the students and teachers.
