Steve Noll’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 19 Dec 2009

Location: Baghdad, Iraq

MapLast night I attended a USO concert which featured Tennis Star Anna Kournikova, Comedian Dave Attell, Country Star Billy Ray Cyrus and hosted by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mullen. I got my picture taken with Admiral Mullen and he gave me one of his Coins. Military coins are a big deal in the military...kind of a collectors item. He is the Senior ranking military member in the US military. Above him is the SECDEF, Vice President, and then President.

This morning, the entire USO show had an office call with General Odierno, 4-star general in charge of Iraq War, in the palace that I work in. We got word they were here and ran downstairs with our cameras, and I managed to get pictures with Anna Kournikova, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Dave Attell. They were all nice and happy to take the time to take pics with the troops.
