Every year I try to do a big Anniversary Special event. I typically try to do it on the week November 11th falls in, but I just did not have the time for preparation in the month prior. So I decided to do it this week instead– this will be the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, a time when we’re grateful for what we have and we are considerate tot hose who are in need… at least, that’s how it is supposed to play out.
In Iraq, there were a lot of politics that got in the way of working with and interacting with the locals. This week we’ll see some of the silliness played out in a slightly exaggerated fashion.
