Army Update

Tony has been stationed just outside Athens at Megalo Pefko for the past month. He is in the Special Forces and it sounds tough! He does a lot of night training as well as training and exercises throughout the day, which leaves him little time to sleep; he had 6 hours the other night which he thought was "luxury". Usually they'll sleep for a few hours then get woken up at 2 or 3am, do some training and maybe go back to bed for another hour or two! Sometimes he is in charge of 8 other soldiers and works as a guard too. He will move to a base on the island of Samos in the next month or so for further and tougher training. Here are some recent photos taken at the base. I have no clue when I'll see him next but I hope it's soon!!
