Husker Nation....

.....Even in Iraq! I walked into a brief in Ashraf and this colorful reminder of home caught my eye! Mom, I had to take a picture for you! They still don't hold a candle to your love for the BIG RED... but I knew you'd appreciate their loyalty!! GO BIG RED! :D

Stuck in Kirkuk

I have been stuck here going on 4 days now. Apparently air travel in Iraq is not very all. I showed up this morning to get on a Fixed Wing Aircraft (which is supposed to be more reliable than a Rotary Wing) for them to tell me the flight was delayed until XXXXhours tomorrow morning... she may have well said cancelled.

Sgt Bostic just came and tapped me on the shoulder asking me how I'd like to go out at 1300 today!? duh... When and where!? I'm there. I don't know what happened, but I'm signing off so I can catch my flight!! Wish me luck!!!

UPDATE.... flight was delayed and in turn I was going to miss the connection to Speicher. I'm still here. overjoyed.
