Photos from Iraq

Existing flag of Iraq Proposed new flag of Iraq Flag of Afghanistan

A friend of mine who is stationed in Iraq has sent me photos from there. As a tribute to the the many military men and women serving there, I will post some of the photos as I receive them. Even if you do not approve of the US involvement in Iraq, please keep our brave armed service personnel as well as the people of Iraq and Afghanistan in your thoughts and prayers. An often used quote over there is "If you find you're in hell, keep going."
