On this date in 2013, I saw an opportunity to have a brief respite from the Afghanistan summer heat when the fixed-wing guys’ solo dunk tank was freshly rinsed out and filled by the air base’s fire department.
I hustled back to my tent to put on my Army PT shorts for a quick dip in the pool and chill for a few moments with a 0% alcohol near-beer.
I also swam nearly 100 laps and wasn’t even out of breath.
Honestly, I pretty much only stayed in there long enough to take the picture.
