Update

Easter 2007, downtown Baghdad:




Easter 2008 in Florida:

What a difference a year makes.

That's Mike on the left and Jon on the right. It was a great weekend.

Mark has been on a fairly rigorous training schedule and hasn't had much time to write. But I expect to see something shortly and will post it.

Meanwhile, I will prattle on in his absence.

I've attached a link in the sidebar to the NY Times story about the 4,000 casualties from the Iraq war. It contains blog posts from six soldiers who died in Iraq. It is heart wrenching but there is a common thread that connects all soldiers who are or have been overseas.

You are right MM. I should be writing. It's been very busy and I have been on the road quite a bit.

SPC Mark has sent me a new post and I will try to get online today.
