    Default Instantcert in Afghanistan

    Just thought you guys like to know that Instantcert is now being advertised at the Education center here in Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. They test for CLEPs/DSSTs/ECE (Not all of them) and other exams. Their list of study resources that is given out with their available exams now has Instantcert listed on there.

    They are going to put something together over here for the 4th. They're gonna start the day with a 5K fun run (I don't know what's fun about that),
    and a bunch of BBQ's all over the place. I'll be sleeping when all this happens, since I work the night shift.
    I heard the Taliban are going to provide the fireworks

    The cooks in our dining facilities are all Afghan. They let them cook a native dish for us two nights ago. They just called it "Afghan Chicken" with white rice. It was the best meal I've had over here. They had those Afghan cooks working overtime because all the Service members were going back and selecting that dish only. All the American food was almost untouched that night. Except of course for those that only eat salads,

    Im glad to hear this about Instantcert. When I was at Kandahar AF I was really hoping to knock out some testing. The education office didn't have a testing officer but always had one "on the way" for my entire deployment so no testing could be done.

    A 5K run ???

    Are they nuts? I know you have to train but something more reasonable wouldmake more sense to me.

    Guess they will allow the Afgans to prepare some more local food for all of you. I would imagine that it would be a very nice change from the usual.
