    there’s a reason i’m not in q8 in early august or late february ….. veterans don’t say why except to other veterans.
    if i had to do it again, I WOULD
    but kuwait has changed
    i remember 2 q8is back then, some one from ‘the family’ i had to call in so many favors through the supply chain because this guy was so fat there was no US Army boot that would fit him …. 13 extra large and he only said that he wanted 2 pairs of boots instead of 1 when i finally gave him a pair. and then there was a quiet kuwaiti national guard captain who refused medical care despite his 4 month wounds….i asked years later about that national guard captain, he ended up dying in the uk with lychemoea, most every body in the kuwait natioanl guard knows of him – HE was and is the spirit of kuwait. that guy was a real soldier – and a true son of kuwait !

    This is a a day never to be forgotten, when the neighbour invaded us early morning. Kuwait went through alot and thank god first and the spirit of Kuwaitis and all the nations that had stood with us. Without them kuwait wouldnt have been free. Thanks Mark for the post.
