MORRIS - There is no such thing as a typical day on the Army Life Support Area (ALSA) at Ali Al Salem Airbase in Kuwait for Sergeant Tracy White.


White, a 23-year-old Morris native, and member of the Minnesota Army National Guard, was deployed to Kuwait last July. She works in the Emergency Operations Center on the ALSA, where she helps monitor weather, travel conditions and safety concerns for all groups working in the area.
