(lubavitch.com) It is as unlikely a place as any, but for Laurie Zimmet and Moshe Lans, Iraq will always remind them of how much they have in common and what brought them together.

...
Zimmet enlisted in the United States Navy Reserve in August of 2001, two weeks shy of 9/11. She worked in various military positions and was sent to the Persian Gulf, including Iraq in 2003. After seven months, she returned to the United States, eventually returning for a year of service in Iraq in 2005. Within a few weeks of her and Lans' arrival, serendipity struck.
...
"We met during our first month 'in country,'" Zimmet remembers.
...
"We've dedicated our marriage and any good we create within it to the merit and memory of Gavriel and Rivki Holtzberg," Zimmet says.
"It was amazing Divine providence that Laurie met her husband on Yom Kippur day in the Garden of Eden on the Euphrates River," says Rabbi Moshe Bryski, Chabad representative to Agoura Hills, California.
...
It was good fortune that Bryski and Zimmet met themselves.
...
"I come from an amazing family," Zimmet says, "but the Bryskis, the other rabbis and rebbitzens, the community, they're my family, too!
...
"Most Jews don't announce it, not every Jew has a name like 'Goldberg,' and not every 'Goldberg' these days is a Jew; so sometimes it will take months before you realize some of the folks you serve with are Jewish," says Zimmet.
"We're both very proud to follow in our parents' footsteps," she continues. Her father and Lans' mother were in the Navy; Zimmet's father was a war hero and Lans' father received a Purple Heart during his Army tour in the Vietnam War.
...
Zimmet has also tried to assist her fellow Jewish soldiers in their spiritual needs whenever possible. She has been aided by military chaplains, the Jewish Welfare Board, and Aleph.
Since its founding in 1981, the Aleph Institute has sent thousands of care packages to American Jewish soldiers around the world. Holiday provisions, chaplains, and camouflaged Torahs are among their many positive types of ammunition. "The Aleph Institute is outstanding at meeting the religious and spiritual needs of Jewish service members," affirms Zimmet.
...
When Zimmet and Lans were deployed, Katz sent them books and materials.
...
Lans works for the Army at FT Belvoir and Zimmet continues her service in the Navy.
