More NC residents are getting shipped off to Iraq. (Herald-Sun):
Twenty-eight soldiers of the 217th have been mobilized as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The 217th was winner of the state Conley Award in 2000 for excellence in food service and has won the Army Superior Unit Award for devotion to duty and superior peacetime efforts.
The unit’s duties in Iraq will include supervising mail operations for Kellogg Brown and Root, a division of Halliburton.
Ugh. Just reading Halliburton makes my skin crawl.
