hmmm, I video taped my six year old granddaughter learning to ride a bike yesterday with my cell phone and I was on a bike and it had less shaking than this video.

opps, sorry. But really, I’m almost 60, overweight and hadn’t been on a bicycle for 4 years when I shot my video. Oh well. Thanks for the look into the life.

It is an honor to serve with some of the finest soldiers I have ever worked with in my entire military career, and I AM speaking of the Iraqi Soldiers

Thank you for sharing that with me. I was under the impression that the Iraqi soldiers were lame and were not stepping up to the task. Thank you for clarifying that for me.

Thanks, David. I enjoyed the whole thing...well, maybe except the overhead light shots :)

We get to feel a little closer to them.

there are challenges.. but the Iraqis that “get it” certainly are more effective than a dozen the don’t “get it”.. and make me very proud to be a part of helping them “get it”

I don't know if they're great soldiers or not, but give those Fiji guys a recording contract. :-)

Thanks for standing the watch David. Your efforts are deeply appreciated by all patriots.
