My cousin, Air Force Major Craig Perry just returned from a six-month deployment to Baghdad, Iraq. While he was there, he was in charge of a unit which investigates roadside bombs.

Craig has some great photos of his time there and a memorial to those in his unit who were lost.

Some in Craig’s unit were extended for the surge and as Blackfive reveals, these troops are the essence of what is great about America.

Welcome Blackfive and Sisu visitors!
