Someone You Should Know

One way people can show appreciation for those who serve in the military is to pick up the tab when we encounter them in restaurants. My in-laws, who were in the chairborne during WWII, used to do this during the Vietnam era. Here's one soldier I look forward to buying a meal from.

It is worth noting that he was on a procurement run when he happened upon the ambushed unit. This is something I'd heard nothing about, but I take it to mean that the military is purchasing foodstuffs from the Iraqi economy, a nice little bit of news.

Great story. Thanks for pointing me in the warrior chef's direction...
