Want to know what our soldiers think about being in Iraq?

It appears that some people believe in what they are doing.

This is great. It's hard to believe that the general media hasn't pickedthis up!!!This was a joint reenlistment of 1215 American Service men and women. Great example of service and how our Military feels about the task at hand.
Want to know how the war is going? Here is a reenlistment ceremony from Baghdad on the 4th of July. It seems to say that all of the young men and women in these photos think that what they are doing is important and they want to be continue to be part of it. Somehow this did not make it onto network news broadcasts. The ceremony was held July 4, 2008 at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad, Iraq. General Petraeus officiated . A pizzeria in Chicago donated 2000 pizzas that were made last weekend, shipped on Sunday, arrived in Baghdad Wednesday and were fed to the enlistees on the 4th.

Isn't it amazing the feelings they have there. We don't share the same feelings because we are here and worry about our love ones. I am so proud of all our service men and women...especially my newphew William Michael. I hope he comes home safe and sound in Oct or Nov.
