You lived it, it sure does count !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comment by asa c mcguire on September 25, 2009 at 12:01am
does it count that I was a detainee/hostage in Kuwait when the invasion happened. Then joined the army when I was of age. My mother, grandmother and myself were on the second UN evacuation out of the country.
