Friendly, funny and helpful

I’m sitting next to a soldier who is talking on the phone to his family or his girlfriend about his experiences in Iraq.
After I joined a meeting of U.S. forces and the Quda of Taji, the Quda is a kind of County Council, I was driven to this base.
One of the engineers attending the meeting had studied in Aachen and spoke fluently German.
The interpreters are very friendly, funny and helpful -- quite different from my experiences with most of the interpreters in Afghanistan.
