This is encouraging.
The words and drawings had a wonderful positive effect on the morale of our soldiers and policemen who received them with overwhelming happiness and tears of joy “we’re not going to let them down and these paintings will take their place on the walls in our base” these were the words of one grateful soldier to whom we handed some paintings while his unit was patrolling the streets of Baghdad, the next day we received a call from the officer in command asking for more of these paintings which he described as “a proof on national unity in this confrontation with the powers of evil”.

Nice story.

Although I'm going to be my requisite insensitive jerk and query whether there's anything concerning about our men and women in uniform crying. There's no crying in baseball, there shouldn't be here, neither.

Thanks for reading, but this was actually about Iraqi soldiers, not American.
