After Filter's playing in Baghdad,
I have to say that I was fully impressed. As I told Richard at the Baghdad showing, I have followed the band for a long time, so of course it was no surprise that your middle name is my First name. Yes, we all enjoyed the showing and have our way of celebrating and still keeping our demeanor as soldiers lol (There was a mosh pit!). I wanted to extend thanks for all of us at Victory Base Complex and for the soldiers that could not attend, as I know video streaming took place, surely that will be available at the United States Forces - Iraq page or at least on AFN. Once again you guys unlike many others made a choice to come see the soldiers despite current situations. For one night, you made American Soldiers remember again that there are no limits to what True Americans do for each other. A deed that will not be forgotten for long. One thing that separates a lot of us soldiers from anyone else is our pride and our duty to the nation regardless of the reason so long as the popular vote is just. Thank you for bringing to us an amazing show. One day soon, I will be shaking your hands at my concert, but until that day, Keep Rocking! ~ Thank You all!
