Just got an email from my husband with funny stories in it. I don't want to give away anything OPSEC, but I wanted to share a part that made me smile. He had to go talk to the mayor of a nearby town about Problem X:
It was kind of cool. A room full of Iraqis were jumping through their ass
trying to impress your husband as they told him about [Problem X]. They
invited me to dinner and tea but I told them I had to go. I never thought I
would be a civil administrator in an Arab country while fighting an insurgency
against the only democracy in the region. If you would have told me that five
years ago, I would have called you crazy.
I'm going to see another town tomorrow about the same stuff. The only
translator available is yours truly so we'll see how it goes.

Talk about growing up fast! So many lives are in his hands, both American and Iraqi. And although I've never met him, I trust him. If you do, so can I.
