Hello Robin, first I would like to say thank you for what you do for those of us in the military. I watch you in the morning and was very touched when you did the special series from Ft. Bragg. I am a former member of the 82nd airborne division and served with them in Iraq in Fallujah where I earned my purple heart.
The picture I am sending is one of "The Regulators" from the 855 Military Police Co. prior to a mission. After this pic was taken we were hit by an IED outside Ramadi,then again the next day in Fallujah. Thank you for your service.
