News about Allen

Allen just barely communicates with his immediate family from Iraq, so I will pass on a few pictures and news about him for everyone else.

First of all, he is doing fine, and will be on his way to meet me in 5 days. Yeah! His company, and I guess the entire battalion, is moving from their current fob to a different one. I don’t really know all of the details, so he may be correcting me when he reads this.

Allen currently has pretty good internet access, but limited time. We are still able to communicate most days, so that has been pretty good.

If you would like to read current news about his unit, http://www.strykernews.com/ is a great source for information. The site tells about other stryker units as well, so just look for information about the 172nd or 2-1. There are links to pictures from Allen’s company. Click on pictures, 172nd, 2-1, A-Co, and then he is in HQ. The pictures don’t say his name, but his call sign Attack 6. Recently, his mom found his picture with this article from yahoo news. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060322/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq_060322103338

These pictures are the most recent I have of Allen in Iraq, and a picture of one of the rugs he has purchased.
