Around Iraq

Hi everyone! In the following pictures, when I say “various gifts” I mean they are Turkish gifts made in Turkey. Ali has them sent here. He used to be a translator and worked with the Army, when they first got here, and decided to sell stuff inside the camp instead. We take care of him. We (marines) gave him body armor and kevlar, he has a place to stay here and he eats for free. He is considered one of the workers. But the other workers don’t have body armor at least that I have seen. Everyone likes Ali—hell, he has Colonels come in that have orders with him. He is that type of guy that you ask, “Can you get me….” and he says no problem.
