A Different Perspective On Our Presence In Iraq - American soldier becomes Iraqi sheik

This article from the Washington Post caught my eye this morning. It is encouraging to read about the kind of cultural sensitivity, initiative, character and creativity displayed by Sgt. Horn. The article confirms what I have observed about the generation of military leaders who are graduating from our service academies and ROTC programs these days. In addition to the traditional tools of combat arms, this generation understands that it also needs to bring to the battlefield the art of nation-building, diplomacy and cross-cultural communication.

Hats off to Sgt. Horn and his ilk!
