My son was an Army infantryman (A Co., 1st Btln., 30th Regt., 3rd Brigade, 3rd Inf. Division) in the original invasion of Iraq - his unit was the one which attacked and took the VIP Building at Bagdhad Airport. He was also on the raid that captured Abu Nadal of Achille Lauro infamy. He came home intact with only a smashed wrist and a partial disability. I have been a faithful daily lurker on Free Republic for the last (I think) ten years and use it as my main source of news and ideas.
