As I mentioned in an earlier blog entry, we work in a joint environment here in Baghdad. It’s not just the Army’s fight, although they seem to be the ones creating all the rules and running the show.
What’s surprising is the number of Navy folks picking up positions in the middle of the desert. Baghdad is not a port city, so seeing this many sailors is a little strange.
In fact, our “deputy commanding general” for Task Force 134 is not a general at all. He’s a Rear Admiral (the one-star variety).
The picture posted here is what we lovingly call the “Admiral’s Vessel.” I’ve decided that someday before I leave this place, I’m getting in this boat and rowing over to Uday and Qusay’s house.
It’s important to have goals in life.
