    Hey everyone, how ya all been? I’m back for a short break from Afghanistan. We didn’t have too much internet where I was on the ass-end of the earth in the mountains.

    Hope all is well Stacy, Thain, CR, HF and everyone.

    I feel like I’ve missed a lot. We don’t follow news and we don’t talk about foreign policy when we are deployed. I’ve been looking through the archives here to catch up.

    Hi!
    Thanks for the coverage! I just couldn’t wait to see the photos and the video.
    You know the fact that such a high ranking diplomat visited Hungary, that tiny country somewhere in Europe, is a really big thing for us. And it’s even bigger for me personally cause that diplomat is the one and only Hillary Clinton.😀 Well, not to mention Condi Rice and the congressional delegation the previous day.
    I was waiting for this visit since Hillary took office, but I wish she stayed longer.😀
    greetings from Hungary
