Observation of a Troop leaving the Theater

Combat Doc who writes A Candle in the Dark writes interesting observations about his time in Iraq.

Children will flip you off then wave to you and smile obviously not knowing what it means. It was taught to them by other units. I'm sure the guys did it and the kids saw it as a greeting. Children draw you pictures of Americans smiling and fighting for them. Raiding someone's house and searching it makes you feel guilty while you destroy their possessions; then you find the stash of RPG's and $10,000.

Another good read...
