Life In Iraq

Life in Iraq for me and the professional boxers who visited Iraq last week was quite different from life for U.S. troops serving there for a year at a time. As I stand outside my quarters surrounded by concrete t-walls and 12-foot walls of sandbags, it's a sober reminder that regardless of how much defense officials and news media say it's that things have quieted down in Iraq, it's still a very dangerous place for U.S. troops who spend seven days a week confined to a small piece of real estate waiting to return home.
