I had another post in mind for today and I realized that today was the day that the "Shield" became the "Storm". This was the day we unleashed hell on the Iraqi's in Kuwait and in Iraq.
I don't normally make a big deal about my veteran service,I have met awesome people and done things that seen things and witnessed history in the making, and I would go back in time and do it all over again. But this is the day when the War started and it changed my life forever. I view everything in my life as "before the Storm" and"After the Storm". I honestly believe that it has made me a better person and more understanding the duties of a citizen of the Republic. This is to my fellow Veterans, don't matter the service or the time and to those that still walk the ramparts.
