JOINT BASE BALAD, Iraq – As the military reporter at The News Tribune, I often receive e-mail from readers telling me about a good deed someone from the community has done on behalf of service members.

I thought about those letters today when I waited for a few minutes in the lounge at the 555th Engineer Brigade headquarters at Joint Base Balad. Part of it is basically a bar without the booze. Above the bar is a sign from Farrelli’s Gourmet Wood Fire Pizza, customized for the Triple Nickel.

It reminded me of the periodic e-mail I get about the good deeds the folks from Farrelli’s do for the deployed service members of Fort Lewis. The company rarely gets the recognition it deserves for it. Hopefully this blog post is a good start.
