Mardi Gras in Iraq. A Mardi Gras parade was staged on February 6th, The unit responsible was the 256th Infantry Brigade, which is a Louisiana National Guard outfit now serving in Iraq. Looks like the Cajuns needed Mardi Gras there as well as in Naw Leans.

The event took place in the 1st Cavalry Division�s area of operations. The reason Anheuser-Busch is mentioned in one of the �floats� is because they sent enough beer to Iraq for everyone to have two during the Superbowl. At first, the senior staff officers over there didn�t want to take it. But a senior general overruled them. Now that's leadership.
