U.S. Army Corps of EngineersSavannah, GA – No stranger to warfare in the jungles of Vietnam and the mountainous terrain of Afghanistan, Angel Rivera set out on a familiar task in an unfamiliar territory that bred an enemy just as malignant as those he encountered as a career Soldier.

Rivera was one of two specialists from the South Atlantic Division’s Contingency Real Estate Support Team, or CREST, sent to hammer out leases and land-use agreements for Operation United Assistance, a humanitarian assistance mission aimed to combat the Ebola epidemic killing thousands of Liberians and paralyzing response efforts of the nation.

Encountering some perfumes can be a nauseating expericence

 

perfumeClarksville, TN – The word “perfume” is a derivative of the Latin word “parfumare” meaning “through smoke” and that leaves one to conjure ideas like “Is the perfume to cover up the scent of smoke?” or “Is the perfume to disguise the true scent of the wearer?” Actually, the name derived from the incense that was the first form of perfume.
