I Almost Forgot

This has been such a bad week for me that I almost forgot the anniversary of one of the events in my life that formed some of my opinions concerning people of an Arabic heritage.

I owe 241 of them a bullet.

I was stationed on the USS Puget Sound AD-38 which was the 6th fleet flagship at the time. Only a few weeks before this, we had been anchored off the Lebanese coast and had fed many of these folks on our messdecks and made sure they had showers and medical care if needed.
