TV News didn't carry much "real people" stuff about the current confilct in Iraq but I found one on the net that I wanted to share.

It says a lot to me (all good) on several different fronts.

Well - a little prayer when in a combat zone can't hurt. And being frightened is a good way to stay alert which often translates into staying alive.

Newt, a little prayer can save a whole lot more than your life. It's good to see that people still have faith.

Never been in a combat situation but i suppose a word with the Man would help you through it.

Thought provoking picture.

And considering the racial divisions & tensions we've had over the years plus the newness of women in combat zones & combat roles, the mix in the picture is interesting. And heartning.

Also when thinking back to the social mess we had during Viet Nam, seeing young troops mixing freely with older non-coms is a good thing. Neither of these would have been possible then so I'd say that we are making some progress toward maturing as a society.

And truth be told, I'm not much of any sort of religious person so the above caught my attention at least as much as the prayer circle. Although from the lack of reaction of the tank crew member passing by, it can't be an unusual sight.
