President Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq today and decided to visit HML/A 269 in Al Asad -- that's Chris's squadron!!!! So cool to watch Fox News, MSNBC and see all the Marines that Chris serves with briefing the President on the progress in that area of western Iraq, the former most dangerous place in Iraq. All the news channels have photos and info on their sites. What a morale boost for these Marines -- and even better to happen just a few weeks before they get to come home (and not have to deploy again for at least a year!).
More photos of beach living to come soon.
