Gretchen confirmed that Sam caught a flight from BIAP to Kuwait City last night. Fortunately they had tents for the soldiers to sleep in. Sam hadn't slept in 24 hours since leaving the FOB. They had him waiting on the tarmac Monday night in hopes of getting on the next flight. He ended up hanging around the airport all day Tuesday.
He has an appointment with the travel office at 8 am (1 am EDT) Wednesday morning and we should know something more after that.
