A Short Story from an Army Private

September 26, 2016


In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19 yr. old US Army Cavalry Scout Private who had just spent 8 months at war sat out on a street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. He sat there on his duffle bag with his Battalion around him for 4 days waiting for the buses to come and take him to the King Fahad Airport so he could go home.

Unfortunately, the politicians of the day never planned for how to bring so many soldiers home after... the war ended so there was a shortage of planes. Politicians are great at talking, but terrible at doing.

Finally, the buses came and took the young man to the airport. The planes waiting were from Tower Air. The owner of Tower Air had volunteered his planes and staff to bring soldiers home for the cost of fuel only. Happily, the young veteran got home just in time for Easter weekend and spent that time emotionally healing with friends and family surrounding him.

That Private was me.

The Airline owner - Donald J Trump.

That is why I will vote Trump. Loyalty for loyalty, respect for respect.

Donald Trump has done so many good things you never hear about. They love to rip him up. What has Hillary ever done but line her pockets & lie in her quest for power!
