Central Iraq

WEEKLY ROLL-UP



"I’m happy to report one of our electrical projects is nearly complete. It is 2.2 kilometers of electrical line that will bring power to 600 homes. One of the villages that will benefit from the new line was so thankful; some of the villagers told me the team has such a good reputation in the area that they love when we come to visit. The other eight projects should begin in about two weeks and I’ll keep everyone abreast of their progress.

Those of you wishing to send clothes, shoes, blankets, etc; please don’t. I would rather you find an organization in the United States to donate them to to help out our fellow Americans. As much as I enjoy handing out donated items to the Iraqi people, we need to take care of our own people first and foremost. As a caveat to that, if anyone feels compelled, please send what you want and we’ll see it gets distributed. However, please keep the toys and school supplies coming though, with the onset of school quickly approaching, we can use all the school supplies we can get our hands on.

Welcome to the “First Timers” receiving the newsletter. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to pass it around to as many people as you would like, that’s what it’s here for. Thanks for the continued support of the troops; we truly appreciate all the letters of encouragement, e-mails, and boxes. I will be more than happy to entertain any and all questions, comments, or requests. Finally, “if you can read this, thank a teacher, if you can read it in English, thank a Veteran.” Have a good week and Hook’em Horns, Paul."

Thanks from one of Paul & his group's faithful supporters. I'm trying to get his newsletter to the right people in the media here in the Charlotte, NC area too. Everyone needs to read about all the good these wonderful soldiers are doing.
Thanks again,
