Far from home and surrounded by the Red Sea, desert, and wild animals of East Africa—my teacher, Cailin Molina, began her 120-day adventure in the city of Djibouti [Juh-Boo-tee], located in the Horn of Africa.
Upon arrival she was greeted with a strong hot and humid breeze and a warm welcome from other service members. “From 2021 to 2022 the Air Force Reserves sent me to Camp Lemonnier, a U.S. Base in Djibouti City, Djibouti,” says Tech. Sgt. (Technical Sergeant) Molina, a third-grade teacher at Immaculate Heart.
