I found out over the weekend that my son Paul is going to be stationed at Diego Garcia.
Diego Garcia is the largest atoll, in terms of land area, in Chagos Archipelago, part of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The island is located in the Indian Ocean, about 1,600 km (1,000 mi) south of the southern coast of India. (For the complete Wikipedia entry click here.)
So he'll be pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but it looks like a cool place to be.
