Why don't we hear more of this?

You know--interesting and good news from Iraq? I am afraid that lust for shadenfreude has replaced a desire to spread freedom and democracy on the part of the media.
We have been incredibly fortunate to have the privilege of serving here in Iraq. This has been one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. We have done all we could possibly do. We cleared innumerable roads of hazards and prevented countless loss of life. We were in the right place at the right time.

Everyone is grateful for the assignment and thankful for having survived to tell the stories. I want to thank everyone for your continuous support and encouragement regardless of political persuasion and opinion of the war. We couldn't have done it without you.
Read the whole thing.
