Obscene Ammenities

Another experience you'll have at Thar Allah Naval Base is seeing a dumpster with trash all around it and a sulfurous crater festering with some sort of primordial ooze. "It's black water that has been seeping out of the ground," explained 1st Lt. Robert Munoz, a Los Cruces, N.M. native and infantryman with Company A, 2nd Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment. "It's not too bad. You get used to the smell. But I wouldn't recommend going to the back of the compound if you've got a weak stomach." Photo by J.P. Lawrence
