I remember flying into Bangor, Maine on the return flight from Iraq. The first touchdown on American soil most of us had seen in 15 months. There waiting for us was the USO and a bunch of VFW guys to give us Poppys and shake our hands. I talked with a few of them, and nothing will make you feel like a ****bag quicker than having a guy who jumped into Sicily, Normandy, and Market Garden with the 82nd Airborne telling you thank you for your service. That got me choked up.
