Yesterday we posted the appeal of a soldier stationed at the Counterinsurgency Center at Camp Taji for books to stock the Center’s library. I sought out Lt. Col. Jan Horvath, deputy commandant of the Center, and asked if we could ask readers to ship books to him. He has kindly obliged, adding:
Our camp usually seems like a sanctuary for the Coalition Leaders who are studying. We try to ensure they have the best reading material available as they reflect on the principles being taught and apply them to their areas of operation.
Books can be packaged and shipped to Iraq in a large priority mail box for a flat fee of $8.10. With the help of a patient postal worker yesterday, I stuffed six books in a box bound for the library. If you would like to contribute to the library at the Counterinsurgency Center, please address your package:
Lt. Col. Jan Horvath
Headquarters COIN CFE
Camp Taji, Iraq
APO AE 09378
In response to my message yesterday, Col. Horvath added: “I have never met a soldier who didn’t enjoy receiving mail, and books are special.”
