My good friend and college roommate Jeff was in town this weekend on his way back to Baghdad. He was on leave for his son’s birth, and we got to hang out and meet little Gentry before Jeff headed back east to rejoin Ben, another friend. I was encouraged to hear from Jeff that freedom is coming in Iraq, but it’s a slow process. One that he believes in. He said that the Iraqi interpreters who work with his unit thank them for their intervention, and are often asked to pass on similar messages to the soldiers from Iraqi citizens.

That’s all I’ll say on the matter. Here are some photos, courtesy of Jeff and the MP Brigade.

I agree, kid. They're doing a great job.

    Liberating Iraq is a daunting task indeed. Reversing hundreds of years of bondage can't be done overnight.

    My prayers are with every brave soldier in Iraq.
