God Bless our Troops

An awesome bout of good news from Iraq.  It seems that Al-Qaeda has been eliminated from Baghdad as reported by the NY Times:

American forces have routed Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, the Iraqi militant network, from every neighborhood of Baghdad, a top American general said today, allowing American troops involved in the “surge” to depart as planned.

The job is not finished and all admit that there is a lot left to do, but this is amazing news and you all should get on your knees and pray and be thankful for those amazing people overseas in our military.  Make sure that you take some time to celebrate Veterans Day and especially teach your children about the day’s true meaning!

By the way, if you intend to send a care package to someone overseas in the military, the USPS has said that those packages need to be shipped out by November 13th.  That is less than a week away.  So get cracking!
