Blast from the Past

February 06, 2011 | Lieutenant Colonel Kendall Mower

Since being over here I've been able to see a lot of things that open a small window into what this place may have been like when the Iraqi's were here.

This was the base swimming pool.

Obviously not much swimming occurs here.

The old sports stadium

Iraqi Bomb shelters

Old toilets

Scattered around the base are old pieces of Iraqi military equipment set up as monuments/displays.

There are still old neighborhoods left on the base.  My guess is officers housing.

Other housing that looks like it used to be an enlisted housing apartment complex

Old tire tracks set in concrete

Old artillery round casings (not sure if it's ours or Iraqi's)
