food handouts

well hello everyone,

I know its been some time since ive written last but boy have we been busy. Things have been increased in the last month were still going on 8 hour patrols a day but we stay with our Iraq Army counterparts while were out in sector.

Some good news to come our way... aparently were going to be leaving Sadr City in the next few weeks and moving to another sector a little further south. It has its positives and negatives. Positives = were going home and only have to stay there for about 30 to 40 days. negatives = a whole different enemy.

Today we handed out 9 palets of food to the people in our sectors... its never announced we just show up with it and word spreads so fast that there are a couple hundred people in a matter of minutes. Again working with the Iraqi Army we distrubuted a hell of a lot of food to the people and a little bit of candy to the kids. Everything went very smooth and it was a nice perk to see alot of smiling faces. heres some Pictures from today and some random ones from the last few weeks

Honey, so glad to hear that you're getting out of there soon...but like you said, "another enemy"...who??? There are just too many over there. I can't imagine what it's like for you there! You're experiencing something none of us back home can't even imagine. I'm so proud of you and what you and your guys are doing!
So grateful that you'll be leaving soon and so happy that maybe you'll be back here in June! Can't wait to see your beautiful face!!
Miss you lots, love you, and wish you a safe journey always!!!
