Celebrity Camel Boosts Troops' Morale in Kuwait
CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait, March 10, 2008 – Like devoted fans, about 100 servicemembers anxiously awaited Clyde’s arrival here on March 7. And, like a true celebrity, Clyde was fashionably late. “I wanted to take a picture with the camel, but where is the camel?” asked Army Sgt. 1st Class Darlene Brent, with the 106th Financial Management Company out of Bamberg, Germany. “You got all these people standing out here and there’s no camel.”
Our troops overseas need somekind of entertainment too, at least they can forget about where they are for at least a few moments. Everybody wants to take a picture of that camel, clyde was really the star during this event.
