Today in History

 On this date in 19991, elements o the US 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment slammed into elements of the Iraqi Army's Republican Guard divisions at a place on a map called 73 Easting.  It was a classic Armor/Cavalry battle that destroyed several divisions of the Iraqi army.

Your humble scribe was not there.  I was on active duty as an Operations Officer at Fort Polk, wishing I was there.

It doesn't seem like 30 years, does it?

I retired in 1993. Some days it feels like yesterday and other days it feels like the day after the Ark. I hear you.
