Thanksgiving Day in Iraq
Grandma J's son-in-law called to talk to us today right as we sat down to eat! His kids were excited, as was his wife. You all can just imagine how happy Grandma J was to talk to him too.
He mentioned that he had just emailed some pictures of their Thanksgiving celebration in Iraq...he said to share, so that's exactly what I'll do.....
I hope you guys are having a Happy Thanksgiving, sorry I am not personalizing this email, but it takes forever to download photos to email out. I wish I was at home with you guys to enjoy some family time and food. My day started with a 5k Turkey Trot, most of the guys in the group picture ran in it. We had a good time. Then my Company and I had the opportunity to serve the Thanksgiving Lunch meal to the Soldiers. We then had the chance to break bread with each other. FOX News Live was in our DFAC for the dinner meal so if you see GEN Odierno talking to Soldiers a lot of them were from my company. Overall it was a nice day. Well, just getting in tonight...the day is almost over, watching the football game as I relax.
Well, I miss all of you and I love you. Say hello to everyone and if you can pass the pictures along please do so...
John is on the left end, back row......but ya'll knew that already!
John is second one in on the left....but ya'll knew that too, right?
Right now it's football and nap time at Grandma J's. Updates from the homefront later with more pictures....and yes, JJ came over undercover. Disguised as a ....um, cowboy dressed like a dog.
