Next time you think about whether you want to take time to vote, remember this: it took Sabre Squadron six months, the loss of six of our heroes, and hundreds of combat operations to set the conditions for the Iraqi Referendum Vote for their constitution today. The good people of Tal Afar went to the polls in huge numbers to vote. Not a shot was fired. The crowd below was chanting, ?No to terrorism? in Arabic. The purple fingers signify those that voted. They displayed them all over the city with tremendous pride. The guy in the blue shirt and helmet is the Chief of Police of Tal Afar and the guy to the right in a helmet is the commander of the Iraqi Army brigade in Tal Afar. Your Soldiers did an absolutely tremendous effort to make this historic event happen. Thank you for your continued support. We are good to go.
