Found

Lining the walls where we line up for chow are several bulletin borads with the usual lost & founds, ads for people selling stuff, notices for various religious and social gatherings. Today as I was walking past I noticed one in particular. It was a newspaper clipping that someone had laminated and pinned up with a short note. This is what I saw:
It's a big picture, but it's well worth your time to download and read.

This and Sunshine's post from a couple days ago is the kind of thing that make it worth it.

Mmmmm...yummy. A big, strong, hot man in uniform going all soft on meeting a little boy. Nothing is sweeter than that.

I find it amazing that the curiosity of children overcomes their fear and they get up close to these big guys in uniform carrying big guns. Something tells me the kids understand the soldiers intentions better than the adults.

By the way, word on the news here yesterday was many US soldiers currently in Iraq are having their deployments extended. Are you one of those?

Another awesome story and picture. I received one in my email and had to post about it. You guys and gals are awesome and the children know who they can trust...that's why they come running. (and it's not because you all have candy and toys for them!)
