The reviews of Odysseus in America are good but I worry that it carries to much baggage from Vietnam. Has anyone read it? What did you think? What other books can you recommend on homecoming ?

Lots of goodies from PowerSchool and Cub Scouts. As soon as I open a box the goodies all disappear.
All the gifts really help moral here.
Last night all the officers got together for a Gift Exchange including gift "stealing". It was a really good time.
Gifts ranged from chocolates, to CD's to the essential toilet seat covers. It was a nice party. Not the same with out my kids, but Marines are always fun to be around. So thank you to everyone who sent gifts. Keep us all in your prayers. Our enemy is still out there looking for his opportunity, but we are ever watchful and ready, even on the day of our Savior’s birth.

CAMP TAQADDUM, Iraq (Dec. 1, 2005) -- A flight line is full of activity, and can be compared to the verve of a bee hive. The goings-on involves cargo being picked up from aircraft and dropped off at its needed destination, people coming and going and air-traffic flying in and out of the base. For much of the air traffic in Iraq, Taqaddum and its worker bees is the hive that keeps the country buzzing.The service members that make up the dynamic hive are the Marines and Airmen of the Joint Air Cargo Operations Team, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), and are relied on to keep up the relentless campaign on the flight line.
Nice story about the red patchers of CLR-25 working on the flight line.
