LtCol "Odie" VanOpdorp (left), Commanding Officer of 1st Battalion, 24th Marines recently hosted me for day, giving me an inside look at the challenges his Marines face daily in the complex environment of Fallujah. It's a small world in the Marine Corps. Odie and I have know each other for almost 20 years and are two of the five officers from 4th & 5th platoons of the Fox Co 1989 TBS class currently working in this AO. A sixth just returned home after a successful tour here.

Hi, Kurt.
Thanks for your continued posts. I'm so glad to hear that even though you're far away from your home, community, and school "families", you're now surrounded by your Marine Corps family. As always, our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces. Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Your cousin,
Megan

Hi Kurt,

I think it very appropriate on Thanksgiving, while most of us are enjoying a holiday with family and friends, to say thanks to you for your posts and your service. Thanks!

Continued greetings from Cazenovia, Kurt. Things are interesting here - we have some very public discussions happening about annexations, development - the usual fun. We certainly miss you!

I read today that Marines in al-Anbar province are working to leverage strategies for stabilizing the region that have been proven successful by local tribes. Have you seen that in your experiences and can you comment?
