When I stated on a post about the Russian invasion of Georgia and how the Georgian soldiers in Iraq must feel about being in Iraq when their home is being torn apart, several of you emailed me that the Georgians had already left the AO and headed home. The Republic of Georgia had the third most amount of soldiers in Iraq from the coalition.
