    Best Regards,

  2. good lluck…….. I loved reading your blog. I’ll forward it to some other lawyers who probably know you from bk court.

  3. Hello, Brian

    It is just great to hear from you again and you look just great! My prayer will be with you and your family.

    “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
    Do not be afraid, for I myself will help you,” declares the LORD.” (Isaiah 41:13~14)

  5. Hey Brian, Great blog and pictures! Hope they are treating you well and safe. Keep sane by watching Stephen Colbert and co. Lots of giggles

    Please thank your wife and kids for their sacrifice. I have a number of patients from Fort Lewis. Lots of moms trying to keep life normal for the kids.I always try to do a little extra for them.

    Our prayers are with you and your family.

  6. Hey Doggie (for those who do not know, that’s the correct, informal form of “Dog Face”, the only appropriate greeting to be used by naval personnel addressing members of the Green Machine):

    My middle son — the Marine (a very hard-charging grunt) — visited sunny Iraq in Spring, 2003 and sent home numerous photos of that country’s national bug, the utterly gynormous “Camel Spider”. We will know that you have been fully briefed, de-camped and deployed when you post the blog with one of these babies. According to the Marines (who are known to lie — trust me, I’m Navy & know), a medium Camel Spider can chomp down a large tarantula like a taco.

    On the serious side, I’m sure you will find your deployment memorable & rewarding and there’s always work for the lawyers.

    We’re thinking about you.

  7. Hi Brian,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Cool pictures on your blog; cool that you met VP Joe Biden’s son and had a photo opp. I am glad and appreciative that you are serving our country, and sandy and I remain mindful of your family. If they have no thanksgiving plans, let me know and we’ll gladly feed them!

  9. Dear Brian, thanks for the updates and pictures of your adventures in the Texas and the Middle East, especially Balad. It is so good to know that you are in a relatively safe place.

    I hope you have a nice Christmas there. You had a nice Thanksgiving dinner, so Christmas will also be special.

    Sam and I just make a turkey for ourselves at Christmas, but I hope Dream and the children have a nice Christmas with friends.

    Love, Liz

  15. Your day in the life is a joke… have you ever been outside the wire?

  16. Thank you, Brian, and our U.S. Military for your service to our country, as we remember our fallen and those in service on this day of 9/11. We must never forget…

    Your blog has been very informative, very great job! Thank you for sharing with us. You will be glad that you took the time to write it. Over the years memories are forgotten, but when written down, are commemorative.

    Just wanted to let you know, again, I’ve been praying for you over this past year. I know you’re looking forward to your reunion with your family. Your girls are beautiful!

    God bless you, Brian, and God bless America!

  17. Hi Brian,

    I just came across your blog because of Richard Roeper article in the Chicago Sun Times. My nephew has just left Iraq after being there for a year. I am not sure exactly where he was. It was nice to see your pictures as it gave me a better understanding of how he has been living for the past year. I wish you safety and all good things. Thank you so much for serving for your country. God Bless!

  18. Brian,
    I am here at JBB and came across your blog. I’m not much of a blogger myself so I sent your website to my family so they can learn a little more about my life here. Thanks for sharing!


  19. Awesome info! My fiance is on his was back….left Balad, Iraq yesterday. Was there since Dec 8th of 2009 with the sherpas. Your blog really put me at ease and took some of the guess work out of what I can expect.
    Glad you are home safe!
    Thanks again!

  21. Dear Brian,

    I don’t know if you will get around to reading this now, as you are back to your life, finally, happy, at home with your family. 🙂 I stumbled on your blog completely by accident, and was very taken in by it. I had no idea what life looked like over there, and your pictures are worth a thousand words. Thank you for writing this, and giving a vivid picture of your personal experience over there, and thank you for your huge sacrifice to keeping us safe over here. in gratitude, Lauren

  22. I just realized the base was closing. I was stationed there last year. I didn’t take many pictures, so please leave this blog up so I can stroll down memory lane.

  23. Hopefully you are still up after 3 years. I will be going to JBB in about 4 months. Is there anyone or company you know that has been there since? I need info on living on base and what was left over and still operational. I see were there was 4 basic food groups: Pizza Hut, Burger King, Subway and Baskins. Are they still there. Love the writings you do, keep it up and hope for more input, Bob
