WHAT I DO WHEN I MEET A SOLDIER?
"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.
