Had this under another post but wanted all to see it---My nephew is there(in Iraq) and has a website you may want to check out---

It has a few pics of the area and people plus himself. He came home back in the spring and was married-went right back. Quite a gent. He is a preacher and has been on several mission trips to various parts of the globe. On his biggest now. Hopefully he will become a sniper instructor on his return. Mighty proud of all our men in that hell hole. wc

Thanks for sharing that 06! How long until he comes home?

The Campfire has been very supportive of our troops....sending lots of goodies over the years! There's nothing like a package from home when you're in a place like that!! #smile

I know I enjoyed recieving packages from ANYBODY while I was over there. Made the day a bit better, and reminded me of home.

Will not be too long as he has put in for sniper instructor in Tenn/Kentucky somewhere. He is one fine lad. I remember getting anything from home was like candy from Heaven. He has a wife that he has only spent two weeks with. Cute gal and I know she misses him.
