I can't complain too much. Its a hush hush base but I've seen the home page for CFTF-HOA. Anyone been to Djibouti? I'm fortunate I guess to not be goin to iraq so I'm not mad @ going but I know its a spartan base. No creature comforts to speak of but seems like ill only do up to 179 days so I can live with it

I've been there once during a port call. I've seen enough after 5 minutes.

5 minutes huh? Care to elaborate? Was this recently? Since the CJTF-HOA stood up there @ Camp Lemonier?

however long the tour , here's to hoping it's a safe one!

Still trying to nail down the details. Looks like 90-179 days. Good experience on the tour though so I will not complain. Besides if I go there it will keep me from having to go to iraq for a whole dang year. So its an easy decision. Volunteer for the mobilization to Djibouti or hang around the unit and (in all likelihood) get crossleveled and do a year in Iraq.
I Appreciate the well wishes.
