Soldiers 1st Lt. Jeff Freeman of the 1st Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, and 1st Lt. Vanessa Freeman of U.S. Forces Iraq staff sit in the bleacher area of the Qatar Racing Club during drag races Dec. 2. The married couple was able to come together from their separate bases in Iraq as part of the military’s Rest and Recuperation Pass Program, and attended the races on one of their four days in Qatar. Dozens of Camp As Sayliyah military and civilian personnel attended the first round, and had received invitations for the second round, which runs Dec. 9 and 10.
