A solider from Dubuque lost both legs in the last few days thanks to and IED in Afganastan, not sure how I feel right now, guilty, angry, sad hell all of the above, please pray for him and that he can lead a normal life with the prostetics.
Kris Kristofferson's father was an Air Force general who pushed his son to a military career. Kris was a Golden Gloves boxer and went to Pomona College in California. From there, he earned a Rhodes scholarship to study literature at Oxford. He ultimately joined the army and achieved the rank of captain. He became a helicopter pilot, which served him well later. In 1965 he resigned his commission to pursue songwriting.
didn't know that bout kris either
Like many vets he dont talk often about it but it is really cool to se that while he could have exempted out and gone to school overseas like another POS that one sat in the oval office he sad no and served this great Republic!
I honestly believe he made a huge contribution with both moves. Song and Service. Look what he has caused in our country. I'm glad he made a great name for himself. I've always liked him.
