Second Sergeant Romeo Sharia and Cpl. Georgi Khidesheli demonstrate emplacing a mortar during a class, July 7, on Forward Operating Base Delta.
Georgian forces have been serving as part of the Coalition in Iraq since August of 2003.
They have proved to be more than competent and efficient in all of their efforts.
Georgia has been under attack from Russia.
The above map shows the locations of the attacks.
To see a currently updated map, go here -
American forces have releived the Georgian forces in Iraq and returned them to Georgia.
American humanitarian aid is being delivered to the Georgian people by the US military.
Amazing that a new country has reached out to help the Iraqis gain their freedom when the Georgian freedom is so young and so tenuous.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Georgians at this time of invasion from Russia.
We can not thank them enough and we need to stand with them now.
Update: Does anyone else get joy out of the Beach Volleyball Team from Georgia defeating the Russian Team??
