    Hi!

    Will you please consider adding these photos from ceremony of Honoring to NoComment News at http://NoCommentNews.com ?

    The idea of NoComment News is to show in pictures what’s really happening around the world. Your photos are great for it – it’s so important to know what’s really happening in Baghdad…

    Thank you!
    Natalie

  2. Wow! Now that’s a pool !!!

    I’m glad that the soldiers were able to reap the fruits of their labor. I recall that when I was in the Air Force, we helped build a golf course on base. When it was finished our Senior Officers promptly made it off limits to us Airmen…

    Cheers
