Iraqi Army Donates to Help Victims of USA San Diego Fires


10/30/07 by Perry

We certainly have no shortage of negative, depressing stories when catching the latest news programs.  Here at USAb2c, we'd like to redirect the focus towards positive news which is sometimes overlooked.  These inspiring stories, whether by Americans or for their benefit, serve to remind us that we live in the greatest country on earth.  If reading this soapbox puts a little smile on your face and makes you stand a little straighter, we've done well.  If it doesn't, we hope we got you thinking.  Either way, write and tell us what you think.

Here's an article about the Iraqi Army and their efforts to help American victims of the devastating fires in California.  These soldiers know what devastation is all about.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Members of the Iraqi Army in Besmaya collected a donation for the San Diego, Calif., fire victims Thursday night at the Besmaya Range Complex in a moving ceremony to support Besmaya's San Diego residents.

Iraqi Army Col. Abbass, the commander of the complex, presented a gift of $1,000 to U.S. Army Col. Darel Maxfield, Besmaya Range Complex officer in charge, Multi-National Security Transition Command Iraq, to send to the fire victims in California. 

The money was collected from Iraqi officers and enlisted soldiers in Besmaya. In a speech given during the presentation, Col. Abbass stated that he and the Iraqi soldiers were connected with the American people in many ways, and they will not forget the help that the American government has given the Iraqi people.  Abbass was honored to participate by sending a simple fund of $1,000 to the American people in San Diego, to lower the suffering felt by the tragedy.
