My friend called me from Iraq today! YAY! She's doing great and working hard, only about 8 months more to go (on this tour :P).
It was amazing to hear her voice and know that she was okay, letters just arent the same.
She also told me that her mess in the Green Zone (1 of 5) consumes $80,000 worth of Gatorade a DAY!!! So if you know of a loved one (or anyone) in Iraq mail them some Gatorade to make their day.
