Greetings from Camp Striker in Baghdad, Iraq
Dear Sister Morgan,
I've been in Iraq now for almost a month. And I thought going to Slovenia was like stepping into another world. Right now I am a platoon leader for 22 soldiers. Most are young, many are married, and all have had previous combat experience--some on their fourth tour. One sergeant has spent most of his young adult life on deployment.
I'm sorry I haven't been writing on the blog page. In order for me to access the website I have to get the blog approved. Too many soldiers have blogged and released sensitive information that they shouldn't have. this is just a way for the army to monitor what information is being shared.
All is going pretty well. I have a lot to learn and almost no time to learn it in. It seems that each day presents me with a new experience that I've never dealt with before and suddenly I find myself in the driver's seat calling the shots.
I don't have much time to write, but once I get my computer I plan on writing down some thoughts I've had lately and either submitting them on the blog or sending them to you if that's OK.
Have a great day and I hope that all is going well. Thank you for your prayers.
