You gave us a penetrating insight into the quagmire in Iraq. I cannot imagine existing for a week in that environment, much less years. It will be interesting to see your final report, or resolution of your experiences.
Eileen Padberg recently appeared at our club in San Francisco as part of a series titled “Continuing Conversations with Extraordinary Women” one of which she surely is.
