E-Mail From Kuwait

Lt. Michael Kennedy Lt. Michael Kennedy

by Donna McCollum

Earlier this month we told you about Assistant Nacogdoches County jail administrator Lt. Michael Kennedy taking a leave of absence to go to Iraq. He's training police officers in Baghdad.

Before Kennedy's departure he agreed to keep up through e-mail. Kennedy's first correspondence comes from Kuwait, where he's staying at a resort on the Persian Gulf. He can step out onto the beach, perhaps the last luxury he'll have once he reaches Baghdad.

In one of his e-mails, Kennedy says they were issued gas masks which, he says, was kind of sobering. For security reasons, he does not know when he will leave for Baghdad. He'll be escorted by armored car and personal protective detail to the presidential palace.
