Back to Iraq
Once in Kuwait, we spent more than a week becoming acclimated to the desert and training. It was a good opportunity to spend time with my dear friend, Chaplain Tim Fary. The battalions we serve are identical in structure and content (except his is called infantry and mine armor), so we share a lot of the same hopes and frustrations in ministry. We are quite different. Our theological views differ, but our appreciation for reasoning and the arts are similarly strong. He's very funny, and I'm very smart, so we make a good team. Unfortunately, he's north of Ramadi, and baring special trips--we won't be seeing much of each other this year.
