I actually had a choice because I was an only child. There were two of us that had this decision to make and we both decided to go. I had no idea before we were called that as an only child I would be given a choice. My mom thought I was crazy for going. She just did not understand. My dad as a Viet...

I was a little turned off by the VFW because some of the guys in our unit actually were sent free memberships from their hometown post when we got back but I never received anything until years later even asking me to join. The post I would be a member of only had a handfull of guys in DS and I felt...

I remember at Khobar Towers there being gold shop trailers all over the place trying to sell Gold (if it was real or not, I don't know) to everyone. We actually had to sneak out into town (82nd Airborne and 1st Cav for some reason were not allowed to leave the compound there) with BDU's without uni...

I am surprised that the Saudi military is effective at all. I remember all the useless equipment that they had. Their attack helicopters where OH-58D's. What a laugh. Don't get me wrong, the 58's are good helicopters but they are not what you would call "attack" helicopters. Are you sure they were ...

If you train correctly and enough more than likely you will fight like you train. The first time I was shot at in DS I reacted just like training. I said "we're taking fire" to the pilot I was with and the rest fell into place. We reacted as trained and returned fire. I also served as Deputy Sheriff...

I was with D Troop 1/7 cav, 1st Cav Div and I got a letter. If I remember correctly 2nd ACR was near us. I wonder what the VA will say about this new info? More denial I am sure. :roll: I would trade a limb in a heartbeat if I could have my brain health back. It effects every part of my life. living...

Do you know what areas you were in DB? Or what region? I have had similar problems and have been trying to track down locations that people know that they were exposed in. If you can help it would be appreciated. Bilbo I was near Kamisiyah with the 1st Cav when they blew it up and exposed 100k of u...

Same old BS. I served in the First Gulf War and have been dealing with serious health issue for many years now. I lost my career making six figures due to my symptoms and the VA is not willing to help at all. I was not even expecting money but maybe just some answers. I guess they will see how many ...

We did a lot of low passes by you guys on the way to and from the border before the ground war and I remember you guys waiving as we went by. Look...

The post from Dagger X-ray is very accurate. Even the stuff I have read that is pretty good like Franks book is not totally accurate. I was an A/O in an OH58C with 1/7 Cav 1st Cav Div. and I have been looking for accurate accounts of some of the stuff I was involved in and I have yet been able to. I...
