KUWAIT. LIBERATION OF KUWAIT CITY. Triumphal arrival of the coalition troops in Kuweit in February 1991
When I read that the Islamic terrorist in Chattanooga was 24 years old and born in Kuwait that sparked a memory.
I remembered what I was doing in 1991. My wife and I were packing the donations to the troops fighting to liberate Kuwait. At a small (failed) suburban Mall, we sorted through the piles of chewing gum, razor blades and toilet paper. She joined the other volunteers and organized the stuff into little individual packets and when the hundreds of packets had been sorted into larger boxes and the boxes were stacked, wrapped and secured to pallets then me and the other bigger guys lifted them up onto and packed a truck to the roof. Every week, two nights a week. Until our military was successful in freeing Kuwait and liberating it’s people.
Ironic, isn’t it? I guess some people really did deserve Saddam Hussein.
