From my email: Enlistment Ceremony, 4 July 2008 in Iraq

It is refreshing to see members of the younger generation seeing the need to control terrorism and hopefully keep it out of our country. I am most grateful for each and every one of these people who are dedicating their lives for me, my family and my country.

Want to know how the war is going? Here is a reenlistment ceremony from Baghdad on the 4th of July 2008. It seems to say that all of the young men and women in these photos think that what they are doing is important and they want to be continue to be part of it. Some how this did not make it onto network news broadcasts.

The ceremony was held July 4, 2008 at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad, Iraq.

General Petraeus officiated.

A pizzeria in Chicago donated 2000 pizzas that were made last weekend, shipped on Sunday, arrived in Baghdad Wednesday and were fed to the enlistees on the 4th.
