Iraq, aka “The Suck”

I really didnt have a place online for my Iraq pictures  so I decided to make a place for them….  They will be in a somewhat random order  but I intend to organize them at some point,  I just need to get them online. These first pictures detail my Visit to a local Iraqi Hospital.

Winning Hearts and Minds!  One in the heart, two in the head?

“The Ocho”

This is Combat Outpost Rahwah,  we were here for 1 month before we had to move to a new base closer to the action…

It was a little warm

One of our pets,  some iraqi brought it to me in a gator-aid bottle,  he thought we could extract the venom for an antidote,  I wasn’t brave enough to try that.

Charlie Bruce This is awesome Lt. I haven’t seen any of these pictures. I regret not taking many. The food pics were my favorite. I hope you’re doing well.
