Default OT: Cool Baghdad pic.

Here is a pic of my old man and his crew in front of his hotel in Iraq. The Al Sadeer is located in the Green Zone in Baghdad. He was a cop for 34 years, and 2 years ago, he retired as police chief in Pt Pleasant Beach, NJ -- Home of the Bennihana Grand prix, and site of numerous SBI races to this day. In fact, OSO's Sharkey grew up across the street from his office. Guess he got bored with retirement, and is over there helping to train\evaluate the Iraqi police. He is in the 3rd row from the bottom, just to the left of the middle. Grey hair.....seems to be looking the wrong way. He'll be back for 20 days in July. I figure i should buy him a beer or 2, huh?

Good man! You've got a great old man there McGarry. Buy him a couple of cold beers and a wheel barrow to haul his sack around with. I trust he'll have a safe return home.

My friends dad was probably with him part of the time he was there. He is the National president of FOP and has spent some time over there seeing the training. Tell your old man we send our thanks for his work!
