    Referring back to post #436 - from the Washington Post . . . .

    Baghdad -- An American contractor working for the U.S. military in Baghdad has been kidnapped by a Shiite militant group, U.S. officials said this weekend in response to a statement and video issued by the group.

    The abduction of contractor Issa T. Salomi, 60, of El Cajon, Calif., marks the first reported kidnapping of an American in Iraq since the summer of 2008.

    I would like to mention a good friend of my husbands. We all went to high school together and they were in Boyscouts together when they were younger.

    Don Kaspar, a Boy Scout leader, remembers meeting Airman 1st Class Eric M. Barnes as a 15-year old.

    “Even then, he showed signs of leading the boys. He was a natural-born leader,” Kaspar said. “He always took care of the boys. The ones that needed to be pushed a little bit, he pushed them along and helped them through things.”

    Barnes, 20, of Lorain, Ohio, was killed June 10 by a bomb about 100 miles south of Baghdad. He was on his second tour and was assigned to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo.

    He grew his blond hair long in high school to donate to Locks of Love, an organization that provides wigs for those with hair loss.

    He enjoyed the music and psychedelic styles of the 1970s, posing in a brightly colored tie-dyed shirt for his 2004 high school graduation photo.

    “He was one of those kids who you hope your son grows up to be like,” Kaspar said.

    Eric was a catcher and outfielder on his high school baseball team and earned an Eagle Scout for building a ramp for the disabled. He also was an avid bowler who played a 300 game at age 18 in an adult league.

    He is survived by his parents, Tom and Shary.

    One Canadian soldier was killed and four were injured in a training accident on a range located approximately 4 km northeast of Kandahar City. The accident took place at about 5:00 p.m., Kandahar time, on 12 February 2010.

    Killed in the accident was Corporal Joshua Caleb Baker, a member of The Loyal Edmonton Regiment (4th Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry), from Edmonton, Alberta, and serving with the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team.

    This accident is non-battle related and an investigation by the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) is under way to determine the circumstances.
