"Hard pressed on my right; my left is in retreat. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I am attacking. Attaquez!"
- General Ferdinand Foch (to General Joffre during Battle of the Marne)

Today was just one of those days. The network went down and stayed down, making working on the computers well nigh impossible. We managed to scavenge the day by taking a trip up to Camp Beuhring aka Udairi to interview witness in the sentencing case of a court-martial that we have coming up. Good thing we did too bec. as is often the case- what you hear from the witness is not what you’re expecting to hear. As you might recall, I’ve been to Beuhring before, but it was at night. In daylight, the place is even more desolate. It’s a huge staging area in the middle of nothingness. You turn off the highway, go 12 miles west and then 6 more north and then in the midst of featureless sand, you come to Beuhring. Met with some members of maintenance unit. They basically run a big junkyard/recovery operation. They have have offices set up in the back of 18 wheeler trailers—very cramped as you might imagine. They do the maintenance in big Quonset hut-shaped tents. The soldiers do their mechanics’ duties in OD coveralls. When night fell and it started getting cold, they kept warm by burning pallets in a barrel. It had the feel of shantytown. Got back late at night. Computers still weren’t up. Tried to call Anastasia bec. it was her birthday. But I missed her. My office sang happy birthday to her on our answering machine.
