Camp Lisa, January 27, 1996

Fog, mud, destroyed builings, peoples' possessions scattered about. Depressing beyond words.

Never Say "It Can't Get Worse" in the Army!

January 28. What could be worse than Camp Lisa? The mud at Camp Demi!
We stood here for about half an hour, looking around and saying "Can you f***** believe this?" to each other.

It Ain't Much But It's ... Well, It Ain't Much

 

Our happy home for about ten days in Bosnia. The living modules behind the tent hint at better conditions to come.

 
In the village just outside the main gate of Demi.

Kladanj

Street scene in Kladanj.
This was the social welfare office. We would visit this place a lot. Note the bullet holes.
We would get to know this kid and his family well.
Typical of civil affairs in Bosnia. We were trying to arrange for the artillery people to train in this field - not fire - just set up. The land was owned by four different people. And we were sort of sure there were no mines.

Sunlight!

January 31. For the first time since we got here.
