I went with the Iraqi army to drop off back packs and supplies to elementary school students. This girl is in the 3rd grade and stared at me suspicously over her stuffed animal. The little girl sitting behind her was so scared when we pulled up that she was shaking. They've been raised that when they see a man in uniform, bad things will happen. I'd like to think a stuffed animal could change all that, but they're probably right. Posted by Picasa

Erin and I had the great opportunity to lead Cub Scouts in the collection of many bags for Operation Iraqi Children. If anyone reading this comment has the means to donate time or materials, it's a wonderful charity.

OiC is a great charity. They've done a lot of good over here. In the Jan. 22 edition of the Anaconda Times we're running a story about them. I guess Gary Sinese started it.

Do you know where in Iraq your bags went?
