The following 7 pictures were taken at the Al Faw Palace in Bagdad.  It is one of the many palaces built and used by Saddam and is now a facility for the US Forces.  There was a celebration of the 371st birthday of the National Guard held at the palace.  About 40 Soldiers from HSC & FSC were able to attend.

SFC “Chopper” Bob Nault prior to the Battalion Patching Ceremony. 

Chief Floriano smiling.  SFC Nora reminding him that he is in Iraq.  Chief was found shortly afterwards crying, saying “I volunteered for what?!”

CPT McNeill, 1SG Touchinski, LT Roberts, & SSG Peterson prior to the patching ceremony.  Notice the smiles on the others faces, while CPT McNeill grins sheepishly.  He had just passed gas.  8 seconds later, the others were seen gagging behind the barriers.
