Dear Friends of the 101st Airborne Division,
I am back in New York after spending about five months with the 101st Airborne Division's 1st Brigade in Iraq. The soldiers have several months to go, and I hope the rest of their deployment passes very quickly and safely.
In honor of the soldiers, I would like to invite all of you who know someone serving in Iraq to send me your pictures. They can be family photos, photos of the soldiers you miss so much, anything you would like to share. I will post as many of them as I can on this blog and my other blog: http://headsdownspiritsup.blogspot.com
I can be reached at my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
My thoughts are always with the soldiers and all of you who care about them.
Thank you all for keeping up with my stories and writing to tell me about your soldiers.
P.S. Below this message you will find four pictures that were sent to me from Andy in Slovakia. Andy and his friends are big fans of the 101st Airborne Division, and they have organized a group that engages in re-enactments of the 101st's activities. I think it's great that the 101st can count Andy and his group as friends and supporters.
