I'm so glad you said something Lorie - that was a typo! When I copied/pasted, the Afghanistan list repopulated into the Iraq list too. Ooops! Fixed it now.

However - some weeks we do end up only mailing to one branch or another; it depends on requests and who's up in the rotation of contacts that we have. :) This week, Iraq was all Army!
