How things are in Iraq!

My son sent me an update of the things He has been up to in Iraq! Here is a cut and paste from a letter put together by the Soldiers based in Al Hillah: My Son is CPT Roberts.

CPT Roberts, SPC Torres, PFC Walas, and PFC
Menjivar advised and fought along side the 4th Company in response to Small
Arms Fire by Anti Iraqi Forces and secured several smaller caches.

Here is the engagement that includes my Son, CPT Roberts:

During OPERATION ALGERIA II, the 2nd Company of 2nd Bn, 2-8 IA,
advised by 1LT Rob Rossfeld, SSG LeBlanc, and SPC Kromarek, managed to find a
major weapons cache consisting of well over 100 different Artillery
Rounds, multiple weapons, and 200 gallons of Home Made Explosives. MAJ
Hoffmeister, SFC Holden, SPC Sanders and PFC Schneider, working with the
2nd Battalion Command Element, found 6 IEDs and destroyed them with
Coalition EOD forces. CPT Roberts, SPC Torres, PFC Walas, and PFC
Menjivar advised and fought along side the 4th Company in response to Small
Arms Fire by Anti Iraqi Forces and secured several smaller caches. SFC
Davis, SFC Clark, PFC Zarebi, and PFC Primus advised the 1st CO of 2nd
BN who detained 24 insurgents during the operation and CPT Ethan Chang
advised the QRF Company who reacted to enemy contact, seized several
weapons, and recovered an IED. The entire operation resulted in detaining
43 insurgents, 17 of which were wanted for the murder of the may
or of Iskandriya a year ago.

Photos!

Well, I still have the dreaded Triangle and Spin wheel to upload my photos. I also, saw where I have to always use Firefox.
Whew! What a frustrating few days this has been. Not one answer to my questions from the group or from Blogger - contact us for Help!

March My Birthday Month

I am still surprised I won the Valentine's Day Basket. It was for the office Charity Pot that allows us to have raffles on Baskets!
Oh, well! It is lent and We do not have any snacks or coke of any kind in the house. No meat! I order Veggie tempura and He ate all of them. Closest to a snack available.
I went up to Rockport and have some photos.
My brother got a Toy Poodle and He is named Xander. He sent me a 6440 sewing machine already to go fully tuned up.
He is buying me some plates too.

We had midnight snow. Do not recall snow in the forcast.
