Greetings again Iraq Affinity Group supporters

Our next meeting is, perhaps appropriately, being held on Armistice Day, 
Wednesday, November 11 (you probably know it as Veterans day, but it was 
the day to mark the end of the war to end all wars, till the 2nd world 
war... then the UN was created to prevent war, and see how great that's 
working). Below is the proposed agenda for the monthly meeting of the Iraq 
Affinity Group, at 7 PM on Wednesday at our office at 2807 SE Stark.
