Major Randal Rogers, of the Ohio National Guard, was stationed in Iraq with his unit, the 371st Sustainment Brigade until 2012. He has been a member of OOS since its inception, and took his birding enthusiasm with him to Iraq. He helped fellow soldiers with an interest in birds, and more importantly, he has been working to conserve Iraq's birdlife. To those ends, he has been publishing a newsletter about the natural history of Iraq, Al-Asad au Natural.Here are links to PDF versions of Randy's newsletters.
