An Enormous Opportunity

Our Missionary to the Frozen, Northern Wastelands points us to this post discussing Iraq as an "enormous opportunity." How right that is!

I had a chance to interview coworkers who were candidates for the I MEF SCIAD position this week. These people were unreal. Many of them were former Marines who wanted to do their part and go back. Brilliant, hard working and dedicated, they were civilians volunteering for a job that would see them deployed repeatedly to Iraq and Afghanistan.

America is an amazing place. We have a lot to be proud of in the removal of a psychotic, fascist dictator and the nurturing of the first Arab democracy. I'm proud to be a very tiny part of that effort.
