It also gets unbelievably cold in the opposite season, and typically shifts from one extreme to the other within a few weeks.
Oh, so our soldiers don’t need air conditioners in 100+ degree temps, or heat when it’s cold? Unbelievable.

You under-estimate our soldiers and sailors. I lived in an Army camp in Iraq in the height of Summer with no air conditioners (our latrine and shower facilities also had to be home-built, out of tubs we burned with diesel every day, and water jugs, respectively). It took the span of several months to set up air conditioners in many of the camps (along with structures for bathrooms and showers).

And my earlier ¨brown water¨ Navy tours were about the same level of amenities too...
