Iraqi Soldiers Send Money to Aid California Fire Relief

I am pretty sure this won’t be the top story on your evening news tonight. The mainstream media does not want you to know that many Iraqis are thankful for America’s role in their fight for freedom.

While a donation of $1,000 may not address any significant part of the loss from California’s ravaging wildfires, already estimated at more than $1 billion, the source of that gift has some people expressing awe.

A troop of Iraqi soldiers assembled the funds and forwarded them to California for inclusion in the relief efforts being offered the thousands of people displaced by the still-burning California fires.

“That is the kewlest cool thing I have read all month,” wrote “no one you know” on the Minx forum.

The report comes from the U.S. military. Army Sgt. 1st Class Charlene Sipperly, of Bayfield, Colo., who works in the military’s public affairs division, released a news statement about the concern the Iraqi soldiers expressed for the California victims.

“Members of the Iraqi Army in Besmaya collected a donation for the San Diego, Calif., fire victims …at the Besmaya Range Complex in a moving ceremony,” she wrote.

“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,” she wrote.
