      SGT Moeller,
      I am the wife of one of the soldiers there in Barge Matal. The pictures that I am seeing are from July 12, my husband's PLT did not leave for Barge Matal until July 30. I am wondering if you were there when they arrived, are you still there, will you post some more pictures? Please take care and come home safe.
