A cousin just came back from Iraq.
Here's the story.
And here's a cool postscript from his wife, my cousin Nancy:
As a follow up to the story (and this will make more sense after you read the story), our doorbell rang this afternoon. There stood the head chef from Wegman's with a HUGE tray of sushi. I think every kind they make was on the tray. He said "Welcome Home, Sir, and Thank You from Wegman's."
