As I mentioned in the last post, Allmandinger won the Thanksgiving Day race on Camp Adder, Iraq. The story is here on the New York Times "At War" blog.
The other story is about how Allmandinger left Army active duty after eight years of service in August of 2001, then re-enlisted after 9-11. His story was in the New York Times on the 10th Anniversary of 9-11. Here is the link.
