    This is amazing stuff - You write beautifully - happy / sad / factual .... almost black comic.... it can bring a tear to one's eye if she's not careful!

    Home Sweet Home... well for a year at least... I was here too (still am) for OIF 2.. but you forgot to mention the nightlife at the MWR Palace: Karaoke, Salsa, R&B, and Country Night... Plus Green Beans Cafe is open 24/7 now!!

    The palaces look like the old fortresses in Turkey and other countries...In a few hundred yrs when tourists are touring the old castles, they will hear the story of iraq and saddam.......it will forever be a part of history.. Hope you return home soon!!
