ABSTRACT
The article discusses how soldiers, fighting Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq, are maintaining their personal balance through learning different languages and doing physical exercises. Many soldiers are using their off-time to do formal studies like short-period courses and learning different languages through online courses. Some of the soldiers are even providing courses like criminology. Several soldiers participated in a contest organized by Logistics Support Area Anaconda.
