Then and Now,

Korea to Kuwait

 

As of today March 9, 2003, it would seem that

War with Iraq and possibly even North Korea

is on the minds of many people all over the world.

With so many young men now going off to face conflict,

many away from home for the first time,

I have chosen to introduce this new page, in the hopes that

any of you out there who wish, may write to ask questions

or just talk to someone who has been there before.
