Bill Mitchell, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of History and retired U.S. Air Force officer, has chronicled the Baylor teams’ efforts in a new book, “Baylor in Northern Iraq During Operation Iraqi Freedom.” “Every university should teach about its history,” Mitchell said. “This book is a small part of Baylor’s extensive and wonderful history.
