Stories from the Iraq war
1st and Last Deployment to Iraq
Being deployed also gave me a greater sense of just how good America truly is. Iraq isn't a bad country by any means but its not the USA. While I hope we can continue to build upon our relationship with the Government of Iraq, I am in no hurry to return. As our containers departed and were checked by Iraqi customs, I was in amazement at not how well we had trained them but at how well they retained it. It was almost frustrating with the anticipation of returning home, but you couldn't help but feel pride when watching them do their duties.
I hope that the relationship continues to bud and that Iraq and America will share a long and bountyful future.
