A good friend from college is now on his way home from a two week trip to Iraq as an embed with the Oregon National Guard. The knot in my stomach will be officially gone once I hear his voice from his home in Portland.
I completely admire my friend and not because of his compelling need to do this in order to bring light to the many good things that our soldiers are doing every day to help the people of Iraq establish a democracy. I admire him because he is a truly honorable and good soul. Something you don't find much these days. He is the kind of person I want my kids to grow up to be. I simply can't give a higher compliment.
JB, you rule!
