I love the quote. I also am a Gulf war vet. I can porove that with my DD214
I got a letter from the Army saying I might have been exposed to some chemicals. I do not, nor does my wife (also there) suffer from GWS. We both had a little PTSD. I think I am suffering from it again somewhat. My daughter lives in Manhattan.
We heard a lot of stories when we first got in country. Suposedly a grunt was beheaded for defecating in a mospue. I didn't hear about the jogging female, but there were other stories which turned out to be inaccurate at best.
Besides the muslims i met there, I have also met many here in the US. As a godless westerner, I have met with the consternation of many. Both muslim and weterners. But none of them ever threatened my life or the lives of any of my family. I have even been invited to eat with them. Muslims, arabs or whatever one cares to call people of the mideast are just like the rest of us, some are nice, some aren't.
As I have said in other posts on this board, I don't want any innocent child killed. But, better their children than ours. I'm just glad I'm not in the decision making chain. Gary
