OK I was a bit dubious at first, you being called a “hero” and all. I mean, I respect you sense of duty and your perseverance during extremely difficult times while you were a POW.
I even stood up for you when my Vietnam vet step-father said all you did was “screw up” and usually that meant you would be dead, not made into a hero.
But we needed a soldier to represent the face of the American Military men and women in this war. You were it.
But let’s remember, if it were not for the true heroism of Mohammed al-Rehaief venturing across the battlefield not once or twice, but three times so that US forces could locate you and the graves of your fallen comrades, you would most likely be dead now.
So Mr. al-Rehaief comes to visit you. And you are too busy to see him. Shame on you.
Am I being hard on her? Doesn’t it seem she would be anxious to meet him and thank him and eager to help him in any way possible?
