MetaFilter Members In Iraq August 6, 2005 11:30 AM   Subscribe

Are there any members who are serving or have served in Iraq? Any members who live, or have constant contact with someone who lives, in Iraq? If you're willing, I have language-related questions, both about American military usage and colloquial modern Iraqi Arabic. Email me at the address on the web site linked in my profile.

Jeremy went to Iraq and came back. Here's his user page. If you email me, I'll give you his email address.

Thanks, Matt. Additional offers of help from others are still welcome. I'm working on a little dictionary due out next year from McGraw-Hill and I just want to run a few entries by some folks to make sure I have them right.

There are tons of iraqi soldiers on flickr, if you search around on the iraq tag.

Ah, good idea.

Mo, email me and let me know what you need. My brother is near Talafar and was there in 1991 as well. He's done a lot of interaction with the locals. Let me know what you need and I'll do my best to help out.
