I had three nephews over there at the same time. I thank God they all came home safe. Do you know what SH would be doing today if he had not been taken? Neither do I for sure. You could check out www.theotheriraq.com if you want to see some grateful people. I do know that many were against us joining WW II to take down Hilter. Was THAT worth the lives lost?
Keep in mind also that there was no draft. Every one was a volunteer. God Bless them all.
