RE: Word from Iraq

One of our kids' teachers is there in Iraq as well... the last letter he
sent to all the kids/teachers at school indicated that living conditions
are not what the media makes them out to be, as well, Kitty. And to
boot, no coffee that their families don't provide for them...seems
George W. objects to paying the shipping charges on coffee ($1/lb.) that
it costs to ship it to our troops in the Gulf region, so they either
have to do without or get their own. I can't imagine waking up in the
hell of a war zone everyday without caffeine! Guess our country isn't
doing such a great job of providing the GI's with basic toiletries like
deodorant and stuff either...Mr. Scott (the teacher) inspired the kids
at school to start a collection of coffee and toiletries to ship over
there and they have so far done a wonderful job! Our church is following
suit by donating the proceeds from this month's soup supper to buying
such supplies and shipping them over, too.

playing basketball in fancy<br>ballrooms of castles. This is what it's
really like:<br><br>"Sam is no longer living in an unused ammo bunker.
His permanent billet is<br>a former dining facility that's being
renovated. He has electricity and<br>porta potties. The showers are a
mile down the road. Apparently they plan<br>to install bathroom
facilities later.<br><br>One cool thing: MCI provides free long distance
24/7 for servicemen in<br>Iraq. Sometimes the lines are long but it
surely makes
