In this letter to the the 3rd ACR, the Iraqi Mayor of Tall Afar, Iraq, describes the American soldiers (3rd ACR) that deployed to their city as "lionhearted saviors." The letter is actually a plea for the soldiers to stay (so much for the left's assertion that Iraqis don't want us there, and for the theory that we should pull out of Iraq yesterday).
One of J.'s friends, C., is with the 3rd ACR referenced in this letter. I'm proud of C. for being a part of this mission and I think its hugely important that SOMEONE call attention to this Thank You from the Iraqis for U.S. troop involvement in their community.
Note: there is another, more effusive "letter" that is being circulated on blogs and in emails, but it has yet to be authenticated by anyone. The letter I have posted here is actually referenced in transcripts from General Casey himself.
