Flat Stanley’s Adventure at
Camp Bucca, Iraq
OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM 2007-2008

Hello,
First of all I would like to thank you for sending Flat Stanley over here in Iraq to visit. This letter is to let you know how Flat Stanley’s adventure was here in Iraq. Our day together was a wonderful Sunday on April 6, 2008. The first place that we went to was to the chow hall to get a good breakfast. I had an omelet, ham, and some hash browns. Flat Stanley was not to hungry because he was excited about the day’s schedule. All that Flat Stanley had was a biscuit with butter and jelly. We sat there and had some coffee and talked for a bit. After breakfast I took Flat Stanley over to see how it is to be inside the bunkers here. He thought that was cool. After that we went to Church. After church we sat on the swing just right in front of the chapel. We had a nice relaxing time just sitting there swinging along. I told Flat Stanley about this cool defense system that the Iraqi’s had prior to the United States Armed Forces being here at this Camp, so he wanted to go and see it.
After seeing that defense weapon system we decided to go back to the Pod (little house) where I live at and watch a movie. After the movie we just sat outside on the patio and talked about some of his other trips. Well, that about closes out Flat Stanley’s trip here at Camp Bucca. Thanks for sending Flat Stanley over for the visit, we had a blast.

Love from your friend in Iraq,
James

Maria, your site was in my Camp Bucca Google Alert today. James' article with Flat Stanley was fun. My son is there and I've learned more reading James' postings about Bucca than my son has been able to tell me. Thanks for the pictures and postings. Makes the place seem more livable and gives me a sense of peace that he's in an "ok" place.
