Re: Desert Storm 21 year anniversary.
Humped that nasty Desert for 6 months only to be turned into a wheeled vehicle assault when the ground war started. The only TV was at Brigade HQ, we had Sony Walkmans and the only English speaking channel was the BBC. As long as there was an abundance of lizards and scorpions, entertainment was cheap. We did finally figure out how to make our own hooch. Thanks to the mess Sgt for providing us some yeast.
Hats off to all that were there.
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
