CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Letterkenny Army Depot will welcome its first female commander Sept. 25, when Col. Steven Shapiro leaves the depot after two years and prepares to deploy to Kuwait. Col. Cheri Provancha will be the first woman to assume command of the depot in its 67-year history. She comes to Letterkenny on the heels of a 15-month stint in Iraq. "She's going to be very current from the fight," Shapiro said. Shapiro's new role in Kuwait calls for him to manage the retrograding of equipment coming out of the war. It marks the 15th time he's moved in 24 years with the U.S. Army.

To the editor: After reading a recent letter, it is quite obvious that many of the people who supported President Bush going into Iraq on the basis of some sort of connection between Saddam Hussein and Islamic fundamentalists have no idea of what is actually going on in the Middle East. History supported by facts is showing us that the Bush administration flat out lied and abused its power. Aside from the issue that there was never a connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden himself viewed the Iraqi government under Saddam as being a socialist government.

Today The Herald-Mail is publishing a combined edition of The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail, to allow at least some of our employees to celebrate Independence Day. Through the years, July 4 has traditionally been marked with parades, family get-togethers and public concerts of patriotic music. Whatever form your celebration takes, we urge you to spend at least a small part of it reflecting on the origins of this holiday, and on what all Americans owe to those who decided that this collection of British colonies ought to be a country more than 200 years ago. Now by itself, that decision wasn't remarkable.

Stephenie Bender, Scud missile attacks on Kuwait were the focus of her attention when the war to topple Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein began in March. "Those were my major concerns because they can be equipped with nuclear, biological or chemical elements," said the 20-year-old, who is assigned to a U.S. Army chemical operations company. "That's when I learned the most about my job," she said. "That's when I'd be running for cover," said her grandmother, Lee Bender.
