Sergeant John G. Totzke, 22, from Lees Summit, Mo., is next in line as he waits to buy a CD and magazine at the grand opening of Camp Taqaddum's main exchange July 1, 2006. The exchange services here moved their store from a wooden building to a much larger structure to provide their customers with a more open area to shop that stays cooler than the previous location.
