Sgt. Mario Rodriguez, top, snarls with Victoria Herpin, bottom, as he visits students at St. Catherine of Siena School in Port Arthur on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2007.


A display for Sgt. Mario Rodriguez was created by students at St. Catherine of Siena School. The school has adopted Sgt. Rodriguez, who is with E Company of the 1/149th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion in Iraq, as one of the school's heros.



Sgt. Mario Rodriguez, right, visits with Jonathan Buhler, a student whose father is in the same company as Rodriguez, at St. Catherine of Siena School.

Cute shots. I really like the first one.

By the way, I saw some of your barbershop work in the American Profile magazine insert in our Saturday paper today.

Thanks.
I haven't seen the magazine and it's not online yet.
They did well with my Airport Rangers images (they're using one image to promote the Texas Profile section). Unfortunately, they have an eight-month embargo.
