A Soldier's Letter from Iraq

Read A Soldier's Letter from Iraq.  It has some interesting things to say.

One thing, about which I've been thinking for awhile, and will probably have some more commentary on shortly, is this.  Combat troops are not garrison troops.  The guy who's willing to go to Iraq is not the guy who will fight, bleed, and die for his home.  The U.S. has pretty much treated them as identical throughout its history, however.

This may have to stop.
