My Pic with The Man!!!


If and when Iraq is a stable and prosperous nation, Gen. Petraeus will have had a lot to do with it. I jumped at the chance to shake his hand and thank him for all he is doing and get a pic with him in the process last week (I had done it once before but my pic got lost in cyber space), especially since this was very likely his last photo op in Iraq with his impending promotion to CENTCOM commander. As you can tell by my slightly blurred face, it was a quick 1-2-3 shake and smile pic, but I did get to thank him and he thanked me as well along with about a couple of thousand troops, civilians, and contractors who waited in a VERY long line =)

That says a lot for the man, that you were willing to stand in a long line of men and women to shake his hand.
