We heard from Michael the other day. He is in Kuwait, and expects to leave for Iraq soon. We didn't talk on the phone, we instant messaged (thank you again, Jamie, for setting that up on our computer!) Technology is amazing.
Here is a picture he sent. I confess I was a little disturbed initially by the size of that gun, but I'm glad he has it if he needs it, I guess. He said it was in the low 100's that day. Nice.
