I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

The End of the War in Iraq

Today the US Military formally ended the war in Iraq. Troops are coming home, bases being turned back over.

Thank you to all the men and women that fought for our freedom in Iraq. An even bigger thank you to those that kept me safe during my few years in this country, your hard work and dedication is why I am still here today.

Many many memories in this place for me and I hope someday its safe enough to go back for a visit.

There are lots of wonderful Iraqi’s and so many historic places throughout Iraq. This used to be a travel destination for the Middle East. If I ever had children (or nieces/nephews) I would love to take them to see the eternal flame, Babylon, the Tigris River, and all of the palaces I once worked in. Along with allowing them to experience the culture of this region.

Sadly I have several friends who never returned home – to them I am forever grateful as they made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you.

Best of luck to Iraq in their quest for freedom, stability, safety, and becoming a country united not divided.
