Yesterday was a remarkable anniversary.
On January 16, 1991, coalition forces went over the berm and invaded Kuwait in the first Gulf War.
We've been there ever since.
Think about it - it's been 26 years. That's not an insignificant amount of time. Just for me - in 1991 I was 25 years old. I hadn't even met my future wife yet. Never mind imagining the things I'm doing now. Of course, there are some constants - I was still a Scouter, but with my youth troop at 61 Saugus - I was still living in nearby Revere in those days.
So it seems appropriate to see what those 26 years of "We are always at war with Eurasia" hath wrought.
