July 2009 Alumnae/i Notes

A report came on May 29 from Tommy O'Keefe '04 in Bagram, Afghanistan. As of that date he had been in Afghanistan for about a month and living conditions are pretty good despite being a bit cramped.  "The elevation is pretty high which takes some getting used to when working out as there isn't as much oxygen to go around." Unlike when in Baghdad, he is now in medical information management which oversees US medical units in the Afghan theater.  He in particular is focusing on electronic health records.  Since you will be sending more letters on paper than electronically, he appreciates having correct street addresses from his correspondents.  Postage is the same as within the US.  His address: TF 30 MED/ Cpt Tom O'Keefe/ Bagram/ APO AE 09354 [email protected] 

Guten Tag, so begins a note from Curtis '87 and Linda Carson; that and the accompanying pictures suggested Germany.  Otherwise this is the information I received: "We don't have a home yet but wanted to get out contact information for any emergency.  Cars' military cell phone is 01622709773 and his military e-mail remains [email protected] . The home e-mail is the same. Our mailing address for the next three years: Team Carson/ CMR 415  BOX 4324/  APO AE  09114 We have been out exploring and feel like we fell into a fairytale!  This place is incredible so we will attach a couple photos to entice you all to visit. Auf Wiedersehen." Ft. Campbell Carsons / [email protected] / (931) 431-3307. 

Brad Doboszenski '95 writes: " I have been pretty busy just finishing up a three month course at Ft. Gordon, GA. and returning back to MacDill AFB here in beautiful, Tampa FL. The family is glad to have me back home and I cannot say that I feel any different. It is nice to be back to the normal life, well as normal as the military can be. Christy is doing well and so are the kids, Ben (5) and Grace (3). They really do like the warm weather down here, but they also miss the Mn winters." [email protected]
