Safe arrival in Kuwait

NAMELESS AIRBASE, KUWAIT - We have safely arrived in Kuwait. Out of deference to political and security sensitivities with out hosts the Kuwaiti government we are not authorized to report on very many details of where we are or what else goes on here. But I can tell you that we are stuck here waiting for 24 hours for our passports to be processed so that we can leave Kuwait, and continue on our way to Iraq.

The faces have changed as the soldiers I met here in Kuwait last year have all returned home and been replaced by fresh faces, but everything else about Kuwait and the process of in-processing and traveling on to Iraq is pretty much the same... You can read this post from last year to get a flavor for what it is like.
