Would Have Never Believed This

I would never have believed that I would be attending a barbecue with a group of Iraqi Naval officers. This is a Navy captain (equivalent of a full colonel in the army).

The Coaches and I

I just finished another USO Tour to Iraq, this time with NFL coaches as seen here in Iraq. (Left to right) Gary Kubiak, head coach Houston Texans, Jim E. Mora, former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, Me, Ken Whisenhunt, head coach of the Arizona Cardinals and former coach with the Steelers, and Jim L. Mora, former head coach-turned-NFL Network analyst. It was a great tour, and the coaches were very cool.
