Captain Johnny Gutierrez, USMC - Message and Photos from Iraq -
In a couple of days I will hit my one month mark in Iraq. I can't believe that 30 days have already passed. My Company and I are getting settled into our "new homes". Of course that depends on your definition of home. My Marines are doing an outstatdning job despite the long hours and living conditions out here. News from our loved ones and friends is what keeps our morale high. Several of my Marines and I had the chance to eat a traditional Iraqi meal a few days ago and were treated as special guests by the Iraqi army. Included are some pictures from that event. Another picture included is a picture of my first standstorm. Pretty impressive to see the sun dissappear behind a wall of sand. I want to thank everyone for their kind words, prayers and support. Until the next update.

Injury Update from Kevin Wiles
The ankle that I thought I had sprained is actually broken. I was still having some trouble with it six weeks after I rolled it during the 4.2 mile challenge run so I finally got it x-rayed. There is a small bone that apparently cracked during that run. Ouch! I'll be out of action for a few weeks while it heals. The funny thing is that I actually completed the Yellow Brick Road with a broken ankle.
Congratulations to NA 225 class members who have been promoted since the completion of the session.
