Security Note - I will never, to the best of my ability, divulge any information that could conceivably put our soldiers and their mission at risk - and they will do the same by not telling you all they know.  So, please keep that in mind if you don't read as many details as you'd like to see.  We never know who is listening on phone lines from Iraq to the US nor do we know who might be reading these updates that I send out.
Special Note - Our primary News Source is Bob Babcock
