Mosul is not cool
The entire batallion is now fairly settled in Mosul, Iraq. Kevin has a quote on his myspace currently that says, "Mosul is cool." I beg to differ. I know the argument that there is no safe place in Iraq, but there are some that are a bit calmer than others. Mosul is not one of them, which is precisely why they sent 1-8 there. It's great to think that they have the confidence in 1-8 to get the job done, but it's also a little ominous thinking of the dangers there. If you are someone who prays, pray for 1-8. For vigilance, for protection, and for wise leadership.
