Old Soldiers

Posted by Lex, on June 13, 2008


The Castle’s CWO BillT is training the new Iraqi Air Force. Part of which is made up of the old Iraqi Air Force.

It’s interesting what he hears:

Every so often, one will seem hostile. He’ll raise his voice, a *lot*, and get pretty agitated. It didn’t take me long to realize it wasn’t directed at me, or Americans, or George Bush. And it wasn’t hostility at all — it was something else…

“Can you imagine what some of us feel, that we fought for our land and then when the leader falls, we are insulted by the ones we thought we were defending?”

“I know that feeling. I flew in Vietnam.”
