Visual postcards from Iraq

Here's a couple of photos from our 41 IBCT soldiers in Iraq, thanks to photographer, Spc. Cory Grogan who is a member of the Oregon Army National Guard's 115th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment.

Spc. Jason Rosalez takes a moment to pause while checking his gunner's turret on an Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) prior to heading out on a mission in Iraq. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Cory Grogan, 41 IBCT Public Affairs).

Speaking of the 41 IBCT, writer and chief blogger for The Oregonian, Mike Francis has a webpage full of updates and information about Oregon's citizen-soldiers, which he updates on a frequent basis. Go check it out here. Kudos to OregonLive.com for hosting the page.
