7 years ago I arrived home from Baghdad - or should I say, from out-processing from Baghdad.
It was a glorious set of days.
I was assigned to the a group called the Rough-Riders of MNSTC-I - Multi National Security Transition Command - Iraq.
It was a good gig - better than kicking down doors but it still had some challenges. We took 8 IED's - and Hernandez didn't come back. But 1400+ combat missions - and I was glad to come back to meet M.
I flew in this Friday night. And then next day was this picture taken at the Saturday Market. And I've been grateful for everyday after, ever since !
