I added a guest book for those that would like to leave a message to the families or the guys in Iraq.
I spoke with Tammi Roper this afternoon, her husband Spc. Eric Roper called her and said "the food is great here, I ate so much I almost hurt myself."
Camp Al Taji The quality of life at Camp Taji gets better every day. The Camp now has the largest PX in Iraq, which has a Subway, Burger King, and Pizza Hut. They also have a newly built dining facility. There are several gyms and MWR facilities where soldiers can exercise, watch movies or sporting events and play games. Soldiers live in air-conditioned and heated trailers, have hot showers and can eat four meals a day in the dining facility. This Camp was officially renamed Camp Cooke March 23 2004 during a dedication ceremony in honor of Command Sgt. Maj. Eric F. Cooke of the division's 1st Brigade Combat Team. Cooke was killed Dec. 24, 2003 during a combat patrol in Baghdad when his vehicle struck an IED (improvised explosive device). Cooke was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart. This is the place they are "rumored" to be headed to.
