This is one of a series of vignettes about daily life on a US military base Kiki wrote while she was in Baquba, Iraq. This is an ongoing series, presented in diary form. September27, 2006- After leave in the US the differences between living in Baquba on FOB (Forward Operating Base) Warhorse and in North Carolina or California have become even clearer. But the are also some similarities: -- In Vandemere, Julian and FOB Warhorse you run into people you know every time to go out. -- If you don't know them, you say "Hey" in North Carolina or "Hi" in California. On FOB Warhorse either works. They answer back and exchange pleasantries. -- All three have helpful postal service people. -- None has a mall. -- There's a gun in almost every house on FOB Warhorse and nearly every house in Vandemere. In Julian most of the old-timers have guns. The differences, however, are perhaps more noticeable. -- Vandemere is surrounded by the Bay River, creeks, fields and forest, Julian by mountains, woods and pastures. FOB Warhorse has earthen berms, razor wire and guard towers. -- People on FOB Warhorse also carry their guns when not deer or duck hunting. Even at meals. -- Most living accomodations in Vandemere and Julian have indoor plumbing. -- There are about as many women as men in Vandemere and Julian. In Warhorse the ratio is about nine men to every woman. Wish I was younger and interested... -- Everyone in both places is interested if there is a "boom" but Stateside people don't ask, "Is it incoming or outgoing?" -- There is virtually no dust in Vandemere. Dust in Julian is seasonal. There is little not-dust in Warhorse, except when it's mud. -- Vandemere has one unpaved road. Warhose has one paved road. It used to be the Baquba airport runway. In Julian paving depends on what you define as "Julian" and what you define as a "road." -- You don't need to wear armor, a helmet, eye protection, hearing protection, and travel in a convoy of armed HMMVs when going to Bayboro or Ramona. -- There are no kids riding off-road vehicles at 40 mph on the streets on Warhorse. -- The speed limit at Warhorse is 5 mph. Speed limits aren't observed there either. -- Baquba doesn't have an equestrian team. I have made noises about getting a horse there; the Base Commander said he'd allow me a donkey. He thought he was joking. The Vandemere Base Commander is more accommodating and cleans the horses stable. , Life on our FOB is fun and interesting but, push come to shove, I'd rather be home. Bringing Smiles To Haiti Three Clowns At A Time Joseph Gallina, son of Michael and Monica Gallina of Julian, is currently in Haiti bringing smiles to the children. He and two other actors/clowns have gone to Haiti with the organization Clowns without Borders. http:// clownswithoutborders.org/. Clowns without Borders offers laughter to relieve the suffering of all persons, especially children, who live in areas of crisis including refugee camps, conflict zones and territories in situations of emergency. They bring levity, contemporary clown/ circus oriented performances and workshops into communities so that they can celebrate together and forget for a moment the tensions that darken their daily lives. Joe is a classically trained actor having earned his MFA from The University of Connecticut. Some of locations in which he has performed are The Utah Shakespearean Festival, The Connecticut Repertory Theater, The Hope Summer Repertory Theater and Theaterfest of Solvang. A letter from Tim Cunningham (CWB USA Board President) When the tragic events of January 12th demolished Haiti, Clowns Without Borders began to receive phone calls and emails asking "How do I help?" and "What will Clowns Without Borders do?" We suggested that our supporters donate to 'first responder' organizations such as Medecins Sans Fronti res and Partners in Health. All the while we have been organizing our clown volunteers to be prepared to go to Haiti to provide the 'secondary support' of laughter and psychosocial health through play. Not wanting to get in the way of the important and immediate relief efforts so greatly needed, we felt it was important to wait patiently for our partners to send out the call for support from the clowns. Bring in the Clowns Recently we have been approached by numerous aid organizations seeking help to bring a spirit of laughter, joy and small moments of emotional relief to those affected by the earthquake. Our sister organization, Payasos Sin Fronteras (PSF) in Spain is sending their first group of volunteer artists to meet some continued on page 13
