CONTINGENCY OPERATING BASE QAYYARAH WEST, Iraq – The 81st Brigade Support Battalion hosted a Black History Month celebration tonight. Good stuff, with heartfelt speeches and a fantastic jazzy tune from a saxophonist.
Here are a few snapshots I took:
Lt. Maria Torres of Seattle presents a slideshow of the life of President Barack Obama.
Sgt. Chad Hollopeter of Sedro-Wooley delivers a speech about the life of Martin Luther King.
Pfc. Chad Henson plays the soprano saxophone for the crowd.
