Here is a picture of the cake I had made for Margaret. It was made by Coco Paloma Desserts out of Austin. The detail was extraordinary and the cake itself was delicious. A large time was had by all at the cocktail party we hosted at TLS. You can find information on the cake designer at http://www.cocopalomadesserts.com/ . Mr. Margaret X2

We opened the barn door, is the horse is gone?
I am told the event in Iraq was a huge success. Other than 4 pictures on the ED’s report there has not been much information available to the public. The event took place on Easter Sunday. To date the winners have not been available. I wonder what type of advertising was sent to the various new agencies.
It appears that CASI has missed a prime opportunity to tell the world about our organization. There was an article in the Army Times. That is great, what about the rest of the world. At the Directors meeting in Irving I asked what was being done about advertising for the event. I was told the news releases were complete but no one knew who was in charge for dissemination of this information or who the outlets were being contacted.
Has anyone gathered additional information on the contestants other than name, rank and unit? Any information about their home town and state? Was there anything sent to the local paper in their area. There are too many questions to ask in this letter. I really hope my fears of nothing being done is unfounded. If additional information is forth coming, I would only ask why so long in telling the world about the event?
When news is withheld for an extended time it becomes like dead fish, it starts to smell.
The opinions expressed in the letter are my own. If you agree or disagree with me, please feel free to contact me via E mail. email@example.com
