Soldiers tour Biblical city

I recently did a story on servicemembers in Tallil who have the opportunity to tour the ancient city of Ur, referred to in the Bible, I believe, as Abraham's birthplace. The story will be printed in the Jan. 19 edition of Anaconda Times. The pictures above shows servicemembers at the house of Terah, Abraham's father, which was rebuilt by Saddam on it's original foundation in 1999.

This is me standing on the stairway of the Ziggurat of Ur back in November sometime. Photo credits go to Staff Sgt. Engels Tejeda. La photo es muy excelente, mi amigo!
