Great News From Iraq

A little less than a year ago, my wife and I, through the auspices of Soldier's Angels (know it, participate, give -- NOW!), adopted a soldier in C Company 1-14 25 I.D.(L). Each week we have written him letters, and as often as possible, we have sent him "care" packages.

We have heard little from him. The 1-14 has dubbed their duty time in Iraq as "The Iraq Tour '04." They have been to all the hot spots. When action called, they were there. They had little time to send notes to strangers back home.

Amazingly, with such heavy action they had not lost a man, until the last few days. That's the bad news.

The great news is that they are coming home. And as they prepare to do so, they are able to tell their stories about their time there.

We look forward to perhaps meeting "our" soldier. But then again, perhaps not. Regardless, it has been a pleasure and an honor to support one soldier in the Golden Dragons.

In advance -- Welcome Home Golden Dragons! Job well done! Please accept the heartfelt thanks of a grateful nation.
