We’re getting a much needed gentle but steady rain here in southeastern Michigan- the fringe edge of a storm that has devasted whole States and destroyed so many lives. The images are unbelieveable. I’m on our local Red Cross Disaster Response team and today I’ll attend a meeting to find out what our community will do to respond to Katrina.
Also, in the past few days, Bill has been sending photos from Iraq where he manages logistics for the 322d Civil Affairs Brigade. I’m going to post some of those here today- you’ll need to click to enlarge because I’m hogging way too much bandwidth- but they give a glimpse of a place that it is so foriegn and far away from most of us. I’m struck by the wealth and beauty of the Al Faw Palace and by contrast, the day-to-day life and hardship of our service people.
Tomorrow, I’ll write a bit more and it will be another SAY HI TO BILL and THE 322D CIVIL AFFAIRS BRIGADE! day so be sure to come back then with your greetings and good wishes.
