The Iraqi Military Wishes Us a Happy Thanksgiving!
I kid you not, they really did wish us a happy Thanksgiving. A Major and I came across this sign out in front of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense building, aka the Iraqi Pentagon, on our way in to discuss Iraqi Air Force programs
We too are thankful for the 'Services and Sacrifees' of our Iraqi Brothers in Arms.
The sign is sitting next to a new flower garden just outside their Ministry of Defense. The garden, like many of the small projects springing up around Baghdad, is a symbol of the new hope here in Iraq.
Hey, misspellings and all, it's a great gesture to all of us deployed in Iraq and back home in the States. They constantly acknowledge our sacrifices we're making both here and in the US to help them secure their nation's future.
Of course, I've got a $20 spot that says Iraqi gestures like these will never show up in the MSM.
As for me, I'm thankful for my family, friends, faith, health, happiness, and for living in and serving the greatest country on earth.

I give 'em props as I wouldn't even know where to begin to wish them similar in their native language. :)
Happy Thanksgiving to you!
We are thinking of all of you.
Oh! And before I forget: Friday is my "bake chocolate chip cookies until you can't bake any more" day. If you're interested in having some sent your way, shoot me an e-mail & I'm happy to oblige!
Happy Thanksgiving Tony! Hope you get to enjoy some good eats during the holiday.
