My Tour In Iraq’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 06 Mar 2010

Location: Mosul, Iraq

MapEveryone, thank-you for continuing to e-mail me and ask about donations. I'm sorry that I haven't updated this page but I find myself overwhelmed with work and have very little time to post on a daily basis. For those of you that don't know, I'm deployed to Mosul, Iraq, not the nicest of areas and certainly an area that's difficult to hand out toys in. At the current time, we've been instructed not to hand out toys when we are outside the wire. The reason for this is the current security issue that exists in this area, it's just not safe for us or our security team. We are able to hand out toys when in the Kurdistan region or when our security teams liason with local villages. Unfortunately, we, as civilians are still viewed as potential targets and therefore cannot take part in these handouts unless in Kurdistan. If your still interested in donating, I'll be here till the end of summer (I've been extended for one last tour) so I'll be here till then.

Donations are still being accepted and can be sent to any of the following addresses so they can be distributed to worthy children, my address is the first.

These are the addresses which can be used:

Thank-you again for donating to a worthy cause
