US Embassy Baghdad - 2010 PRT Highlights

The PRTs (Privincial Reconstruction Teams - check out the fact sheet) are doing some pretty important and cool things in Iraq. Don't worry - this information comes from the US Embassy's official internet page to highlight the accomplishments and programs occuring in PRTs.  Some highlights are: cultural arts festival, mud house performance, sewing class for women, delivery of medical supplies, adult literacy and life skills programs, Skype exchanges between US and Iraqi universities, and more.  That's just in February! 

We should all be proud of our diplomats working side by side with the military and Iraqis.  And, we should be proud of their families. I always say that the more that those of us who aren't over there can read/see what important work we're doing, the more we all feel connected. We all need to support each other and feel supported.  Looks like my posting got a bit off track...but that's why I'm posting this information about PRTs!
