Modern day Baghdad has its fiery furnaces too. Daniel took a picture of this one this morning.
An instrument of Saddam's torture, re-ignited to heat up sectarian violence? No, an oven at a bakery where they stopped early in the morning, just in time to enjoy bread right after being taken out.
fresh baked bread is wonderful....I only got one piece, but it was mouth watering, warm, and still soft. I ate it not less then a minute after coming out of the oven
Yum. Did it have a hard, but still supple crust?
You're making my mouth water btw
it wasn't too hard, or crunchy, but it was a nice crust. biting into it, your teeth sink into warm bread, the steam rising from it as you consume it
Do you get to do this very often? Be at a bakery in the middle of the night?
not at night no, but we do go to bakeries often, when we have the chance anyway. the LT is a bread monger

I don't know what Daniel wrote. I pray God's mercy that I don't have to find out.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3, 2008 – New Year’s resolutions frequently include good intentions, such as joining a gym, calling parents or organizing closets. But through its America Supports You program, the Defense Department is helping Americans resolve to support the nation’s servicemembers throughout 2008.
America Supports You is a DoD program that connects citizens and corporations with military personnel and their families serving at home and abroad. It’s ringing in 2008 with a 12-month calendar suggesting ways to support the nation’s military men and women and their families each month. “Remembering the troops at a time when people are already setting goals will help keep the nation’s servicemen and women in the forefront of our minds throughout the year,” said Allison Barber, deputy assistant secretary of defense for public liaison and internal communications. The calendar, which can be downloaded into Outlook or iCal calendars, is available on AmericaSupportsYou.mil.

We had a rocket attack the other day; 6 rockets whizzed over our tent
Over is a good word
The Iraqis are very good with direction, but thank goodness they are horrible with angles, otherwise we would have been gone for sure, the rockets hit about a mile over the FOB
