Heard From Today: Iraq, Floods and a Parade

The Institute is being heard from today (yesterday, tomorrow) all over the globe– in ev’ry clime and place, if I may borrow a phrase.

COL Steve Warren ’89 on events in Iraq. (Give it a few seconds to begin.)

Captain Marty Malloy ’89, USCG, (my roommate and fellow Roanoker) on the mighty flooded Mississippi. (Read down in the article. BTW– Captain Malloy is not a “spokeman” but is the commander of the Coast Guard’s Upper Mississippi Sector.)

The Band (including the pipes and drums) will be in the 2016 Rose Bowl Parade.

About vmijpp

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.
