Pro Deo Et Patria- An Army Chaplain

I am a chaplain in the US Army, serving in Iraq. I'm keeping a blog to share my thoughts and experiences while deployed. They are my thoughts and they don't necessarily reflect the opinions of the US Army! :)

View of Liberty

Here are some pictures from Camp Liberty. They are taken from a hill on the base, which was made from soil removed to make the artificial lakes you see in the pictures. This area surrounds the Baghdad airport, and used to house Saddam's own private game reserve, where he would hunt. There are a number of palaces, as well as various homes for his henchmen.

Also, I want to include a link to a good article relating to the question of how long we can "sustain" the current number of troops in Iraq. There are many rumors floating around that the Army cannot sustain this type of rotation, and so on, but much of it is misinformation. Click Here.
