Hello and Welcome

Okay, this is my first post from Iraq. I don't really have much new to say, my last group email that I sent out was rather long and covered most of what is happening here. The chaplain started a bible study last night, we are looking at the book of Mark. There were 3 of us besides the chaplain, it was great to be able to do something here that I enjoyed at home. It made me realize how much I miss our small group back at Candlewood, we really had a great group of people. Erika and I are both praying that our faith will grow deeper through this time of trial.

No word on the missing Husker flag yet. The Squadron commander had me file a report with the MPs, but they didn't seem very confident that it would turn up. When we get another flag we are going to have to lock it somehow. We are also considering placing snipers out at night to deter any other thieves. For now, I'll just look at the pictures with a tear in my eye.

Steve, Now you got more flag ammuniton. Hope that the great missing flag fiasco of o6 will get solved. Probably not. Talk to you later.

Your Brother

Wow, I can't say I ever thought I'd see a Husker flag flying high in the Middle East. (And I thought it was strange seeing one in Oakland, CA!) Just goes to show them Husker fans are everywhere...

Glad you found a small group- hope that's still going well.
