News from Baghdad

A small spot to describe to a certain extent what it is like for the soldiers here in Iraq. I must remain anonymous as there may be some who would view this as an "official" posting, however, it is not. Just some personal views on the politics and public views in this war that has been to oftentimes tainted by the sensationalism of the media.

Location: Home, United States

I enjoy my job to the fullest, regardless of the political climate at any particular time. My family and my soldiers are the central focal point of my existence as well as my religious viewpoints.

16 October 2004 (Post 2)

Once again, I greet you all with a happy heart. I received two letters yesterday, of which I had translated today. The letters came from my two little friends via our translator who primarily works with our platoon. He has been an excellent medium for communication with the family as you all know my fears of too much face to face contact with our friends for fear of violence against them unduly. I had given them a few small gifts a few weeks ago that my wife had sent and also some school supplies, pens, pencils, paper, colored pencils etc. I gave them these items because the schools do not have nearly enough to supply all of the children with what they need. Well, needless to say, they think that our interpreter, myself and my soldiers are the greatest things since peanut butter. I really miss seeing them. Our translator told them that I was going on leave and they started to cry. They thought that I wouldn't be back. He put their fears to rest for I told him when he informed them of this that I would go see them as soon as I come back. They are like little sisters to me. I will share their letters with you, verbatim, as the letters are to the American public, US Soldiers and their families as well as to me and my soldiers.

Letter #1

In the name of God, my best wishes and greetings to Staff Sergeant ? and to all the soldiers who helped me and my country to become free and who support us.
I received your nice gifts. It made me so happy and I wish God makes you happy too and take you away from all the trouble in Iraq.

I wish I could meet your family and become as one family with them. I miss you and your soldiers, the heroes. I wish I could see you every day for I am not afraid. I wish all of you to go to your families safe and happy. Thank you and your family for the pretty bear you sent. Every day I look at it and kiss it before I go to sleep. I take it everywhere I go. Thank you for the nice letters you sent. I read them all the time.

Again, I wish you to be safe in this country and to go back to your country with victory and peace. I wish you a happy life and my greetings for ?' father and mother for they raised this man very good, for he is the man he is today. I wish we had a picture of them.

Thank you.

Letter #2

In the name of God.

Sent for the hero ?' family. I send my best wishes and greetings from my family to you and for all American people.

Thank you. I thank your hero sons who helped us in the process of freedom for Iraq and who are saving us from the terrorists. Thank you for President Bush. I wish for him to win the election. I am really happy and glad to know good friends and heroes in time and always asking God to protect and guard him. It is my wish for him to make it back safe and peaceful.

For you and all soldiers in Iraq I offer my condolences to those who lost their sons and I will be glad to be one family with you. I wish I could make it and meet you. I really miss you. I wish to remain in touch with you.

Your daughter in new Iraq,

(Name ommited for safety)

I wish my readers not to take into account the whole "hero" thing. I am no hero. I am just a soldier doing a job to the best of my ability. I enjoy working with these people and I love making new friends. This family is very dear to me. I have already tried to help one family leave this place, and if I can assist another, I will. I have been called a "hero" before by some of my readers, and while I appreciate the accolade, the name in itself does not apply to me. The real heroes are those men and women who have given their all in the performance of their duties in this conflict and in every conflict previously. My soldiers are the heroes for they do their jobs and fight without complaint, following and going wherever I may tell them to go, without hesitation. Sure, there is the offhanded complaint from time to time, as is to be expected, but when the metal meets the meat, these men are the most stellar warriors that anyone could ever hope to serve with. THEY are the heroes. Not me.

I will post again soon. Take care and God bless you all.
