What's it like for a former elementary school principal and seminary student to suddenly end up on the mean streets of Haditha? Volunteering for reserve duty in Iraq, Glen Morris assured his wife that, as a colonel, he would be safe behind the walls of a large base and concerned only about the number of emails in his in-box. But soon he found himself 'outside the wire' and getting a firsthand look at the insurgency in volatile al Anbar province. The Babylon Blog is the published form of the internet journal he wrote for his friends and family. Whether patrolling through back alleys with the 'Grunts,' wandering the halls of Saddam's palace, or commenting on the chow at Camp Fallujah, he offers an intimate, thoughtful and often humorous look at what it's like for an 'Average Joe' to go off to war. Read The Babylon Blog and get a glimpse of life in Iraq for those who serve there.

I appreciated the fresh perspective of Colonel Morris' journey. From working in the protected Green Zone of Camp Fallujah to almost being shot at by snipers, Colonel Morris gives a witty glimpse into the day to day grind of the Grunts in Haditha. Most importantly is reading his mission of reconciliation through rebuilding the physical and relational in the wartorn town of Iraq.
