Godspeed, Major Carroll-Keays

Today my roommate left, beginning the long journey out of Iraq that will take him back home to Australia.

I thank him for his nation's service to the cause of freedom. (Again, for those who call this war "unilateral," I invite them to come here to see the Australians, British, Danes, Italians, Macedonians, Koreans, Romanians, etc. that I encounter everyday here.)

More importantly, I thank him for his comraderie and sympathetic ear during difficult days. (And for the beer left in the frig).

Thank you, Sir, and God bless you and your family.
