News From The War
My brother in law's mission in Iraq is aptly described in this RealClearPolitics article by Austin Bay.
His report to us upon arrival in the Middle East was that it was 125 degrees, with 5-15 mph winds. He described it as if he had stepped off of the plane, and into a clothes dryer. Apparently they go out in the dark of the morning to train, and then come in before the temperature gets too hot. Frank had to use three of those baby wipes to clean the desert grime off of his face before he got clean.
And we wonder why the locals sometimes hava a lousy disposition.
Keep he and his wife in your prayers, and check their blog site.
