Skip to comments.Trooper in Iraq grows grass with American soil

Here is a soldier in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil to bring them good luck. Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home ..he asked for American soil.
I can’t even get grass to grow in my non-desert front yard.
Now that’s making the most of a USPS Flat Rate box!
How did you manage that with GO#1 in effect?
Don't tell me you were with......DoS
Is the date on the picture correct? If so, this wasn’t in Iraq.
I have seen this picture several years ago. They must have copied it and come up with a new date.
Even though I have previously seen this picture, it brings a warm fuzzy feeling all over.
You need some good AMERICAN plants!
Acorn squash, corn, taters, tomatoes, punkins...
Just say the word!
We’re all prayin for you!
KC-130 crew.....we were in charge of our own beer....Us Marines always find a way....but it helps to have “wings”...

The things ya gotta do in a war...it ain’t like the ‘ol days fo so...now I know what they mean by “The Old Corps”....
I know a Marine who received a couple of Pennsy quartz stones to throw in the Helmand River so maybe the idea of Freedom would would flow through that province. The quartz is used in so many beautiful colonial buildings.
Wonder why Afghans don’t build with stone? Covered with river rocks.
Best I could come up when I was over there was
