An Incredible and Unexpected Honor
Moments ago I received a package in the mail. It contained a carefully folded American flag along with a certificate from Aviation Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, Camp Taji, Iraq. It explains that this flag was flown over Baghdad on May 24, 2005 from an AH-64D Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter in my honor. A few months ago I had donated some books to the troops. I was proud to receive e-mails from them saying how much they enjoyed the story, and a little bit curious when they asked for my address. Now I know why, and their gesture totally floors me. Thanks guys!
