On a somewhat related note, I noticed two Canadian officers prowling around the Green Zone the other week. That was the first time I ever saw them in Iraq. It’s such a political hot button up there that I doubt this foreshadows Canada’s joining the “coalition of the willing (& the billing)”, but it makes one wonder whether certain quiet assistance is being rendered.
A Deputy Commander of the Multi National Corps is a Canadian, Maj. Gen. Peter Devlin on an exchange tour with the US Army, I suspect there are other lower ranking officers on similar exchange tours. I heard an interview with the General on "Troop Talk Radio", which plays on Sunday evenings on KTEM, Temple Texas, catering to the troops at Ft. Hood. Prior to his current assignment, General Devlin was Deputy CG, III Corps, Ft. Hood Texas. Dude gets around.
