Our Soldiers are Impressive!

I have been wandering around the "Multi-National Force - Iraq" (MNF) website reading a few of the stories. I continue to be astounded by the goodness of our military.

Gen. Jack Wheeler started sending the MNF newsletter to me a while back. I was so impressed with the content, I tracked down an address and asked for permission to reprint the stories. Turns out the guy who responded to my request in the affirmative was none other than our very own Fred Wellman! He no longer lives in Peachtree City, of course, but many of you will probably remember him. He is a great example of all that makes our military so impressive in so many ways.

The world just gets smaller and smaller.

If you aren't reading about the great things happening in Iraq I'd encourage you to do so. We (Fayette Front Page and Georgia Front Page) try to share some of the good articles and info we receive in our daily update from American Forces Press Service and other sources. If we thought you'd read it, we'd include every bit of positive info that's sent our way. Truthfully, there's so much good news we'd probably have to hire additional staff to post it all.
If you'd like to keep up with Fred Wellman (LTC Frederick P. Wellman, Chief of Public Affairs, Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq), here's a link to his blog, "Armed and Curious, Home of the Heavily Armed Tourist" (great title!): http://armedandcurious.blogspot.com/


Here's a link to a page with a list of current articles on MNF: http://www.mnf-iraq.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=category&sectionid=1&id=1&Itemid=224

Janet...thanks so much for the nice compliments and support. I am back in DC after a relatively short time in Baghdad for my third OIF tour. I will keep on blogging on items that catch my eye.
Best,
Fred Wellman
