Schools In Iraq Better All The Time, Part 2

I bet you think I found this at Common Dreams or Truthout, right? Na.

Students from the Sheik Dhari Secondary School in Rashidiya lined up to receive school supplies Oct. 5 from the soldiers of Team 4, Company C, 414th Civil Affairs Battalion, which is attached to the Special Troops Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

With students, teachers, community members and Iraqi police officers helping, Team 4 soldiers passed out 40 dozen notebooks, water coolers, filters, chalk, erasers and pens as the school prepares for an influx of returning students.

“This mission today is part of an ongoing project to renovate the school,” said Staff Sgt. Walter Laracuenta, team sergeant for Team 4. “We purchased the supplies locally to help improve the economy.”

Hmm, funny how this kind of information never makes it into the mainstream news. I wonder why that is?
