Avi Zaffini in Iraq

One year you are reading Xenophon, Aristotle, and Madison, and next year
you are in a war; I hope he is as good a Marine as he was a student.

Good man, Avi… Semper Fi.

That last one made me crack up. Gotta love military humor. Keep up the good work, Avi!

Love those Marines!! My Marine is over there too. God speed to all of them!

Avi - we miss you. It’s good to see your face. We are praying for you.


It’s good to see the desert heat hasn’t ruined your sense of humor. Do good things and be safe.

Avi--send me an email via Peter with your contact info and let me know what you need over there!

Thanks for what you’re doing, Avi. I’m impressed and humbled. I think I’ll watch Full Metal Jacket tonight in your honor.

ok lets try that again...This computer doesn’t want to work it seems. A big thanks to all who gave such encouraging comments of support, especially you Dr. Schramm no matter how unmerited the praise was. Life is quite interesting here, and pretty soon i’ll be sending more pictures i’m sure. Ashland, and particularly Ashbrook holds a very special place in my heart; a student could not ask for more. And could someone please tell Fred that though the desert heat has not yet ruined my humor, i have lost a considerable amount of my brilliance, a fact that must requre me to return to Ashland as that "stupid jarhead" that Dr. Schramm always (jokingly i’m sure) called me.
