Dear family and friends,

I hope this email finds you all having a great day/night. It's been a few weeks since I last wrote a mass update, but Gabe and I have been really busy. Here in a few hours, we will start out 91st mission of this deployment.

We are now on the downhill slope of this deployment and are quite frankly looking forward to the break back in Texas. We have 169 days left.

Gabe is doing well and keeping in high spirits as he is always working to find his kong that he gets when he finds a bomb or weapon

To date Gabe has found here in Iraq 36 bombs (they would have been made into bombs until we found them), 7 weapons and over 300 rounds of ammunition so he is earning his keep. He also found a bag of IED making components.

The weather here has been rainy the past few days with temps in the 60's and 70's in the day and 40's at night. I still have comic books and I have mailed out over 1,500 of them so far to about 45 elem school classes from California, to Maine and from Alaska to Hawaii....... I ask you say a prayer for 3 more military police soldiers that were killed this past week. A day doens't go by that we don't think of our fallen brothers and sisters that made the ultimate sacrifice so Iraq can wave their flag as proudly as we wave ours in the United States.

PS.....Gabe doens't need anymore treats, he has been on a diet for 1 1/2 months now

Until next time.

God bless you and God bless us, your American Soldiers
