How Free are we?

I have swatted mosquitoes from Burundi to the Congo; been subjected to incredibly tense situations and eaten the worst food in the world. I have had rebels point AK 47's at me, not been paid the money I worked for and had my money stolen. I have been through sand storms and torrential downpours and I have made some enemies, but have made many friends.

As I sit here in the Eastern DRC I am losing weight, sleeping among rats and missing home, but somehow I can't help thinking how fortunate I am. I know that whatever happens to me I will be happy because that is the decision I have made.

You and your guys are doing an incredibly hard job in one of the worst operational environments I can imagine, but your service is a testament to broader humanity and the better angels of our nature.
