Population 485 on the Tigris

Whenever my girls and I discuss my time on the road, we always turn the discussion to those in the military, gone for far more extended and exponentially riskier periods of time than a guy telling stories in regional arts centers.  So it’s always deeply humbling to receive a photo like the one below (especially right in the heart of the holidays).  Offered with a smile and respect for those serving everywhere, here is SSG Goings of the 1st Infantry Division (forgive me if I got the rank or division wrong, I’m interpreting from an email) on a bridge over the Tigris River.
