Intrepid Army guy Matt is still delivering bundles in Northern Iraq, in the Kurdish region near Sulaymaniyah. Matt is working with Iraqi units operating in the area and along the border with Iran. These units are working out in the remote regions, in some desolate areas that don’t get a lot of support from anyone – small villages along the Iran/Iraq border.  This photo is from their recent trip and delivery to Chuwarta.

It has to be pretty tough going up there these days.  Those mountains get cold, and that area gets some snow.

Much thanks to Matt and the units helping with this.

    I wonder if you have had the pleasure of learning about Alanna’s work with the orphans. With the enthusiasm, love and concern that you two share I think you would enjoy this contact…and who knows! Maybe the two of you could get a way to get the American Quilters stitching away for the kids of Iraq in a big time way. I know the women in my area would appreciate a way to participate again.
    Ann thank you again for all you have done.

    I could have sworn I saw soldiers carrying IBOL boxes on the CBS news tonight – Could it be true?
