“Regarding the combat experience, he is wearing a patch on his blues...I dont know what that indicates.”
He’s wearing the 1st Cav patch on his right shoulder. He’s not entitled to do that unless he’s been in combat with them.
I understand that, technically he was in a hazardous fire zone. I have 58 months of that, but it doesn’t mean I was actually in combat. There is a huge difference between the combat seen by Congressman Hunter and the ‘combat’ seen by Congressman Mark Kirk. Hunter led men on the ground under fire, Kirk happened to be in the area.
