WHAT I DO WHEN I MEET A SOLDIER?

I say,

"Thank you for taking care of us."

Meaning the people of the USA.

Look them in the eye, and shake their hand.

I am proud of them.



This morning I met a couple of soldiers. There was a street kid selling an exceptionallly good switchblade. I see them in all countries, and this one was special. Stainless steel and not too cluttered with crap. Clean.

The soldier did not have 3 dollar or Kurdish Dinars and really wanted it.

I gave the kid 25 Dinar and paid for the knife.

What goes around comes around.

Not like he was not already real dangerous looking.

A soldier just came in the internet cafe.

They are always carrying a rifle.

I will ask what type?

He said it an M4.

Too heavy for me.
