In this week's Assignment Iraq, 11 News This Morning spoke to MSG MSG Robert Buchholz, who is currently stationed in Iraq.
Buchholz and his unit are stationed about 70 miles north of Baghdad. He says he has really enjoyed working with the Iraqis. He says they have been able to teach them skills to improve their livelihood. Buchholz says this gives the Iraqis an opportunity to be paid for doing something postivie.
In his free time, Buchholz says he and his fellow soldiers have put together a floor hockey team for fun. He says in their free time they relax by watching movies.
Buchholz wanted to say hello to his wife and kids back here in southern Colorado and his friends and fellow soldiers back at Fort Carson.
