used to be Special Republican Guard during Saddam's time. He admitted to being a guy who dragged Iraqi dissidents out of their homes in the middle of the night never to be seen again. We became very good friends. It's odd that had we invaded a few months prior and had I seen him, I would have killed him on the spot, but with the circumstances being just a bit different, we became friends. War is definitely a strange thing.

I told her, samD

I even told her about the 'true redhead; conversation and she didn't get mad. I think she likes you. But she's not a redhead. She calls it "strawberry blonde", I call it "dumber'na box a rocks". Semantics, right?

But I let this translator (We nicknamed him "Cowboy") carry my Beretta until he got his own Browning Hi-Power. I have a pic of one of my translators on my last deployment carrying a Mossberg 500 with a MOLLE rig on his IBA that held 18 more rounds.
