Found on a Raid

Well this is'nt really militaria but it is political so I hope I'm not breaking any rules.

So heres the story:

We did a Raid on a Anti-coalition newspaper factory , it was abandonded so we began looking for the usual... weapons, propaganda etc.... I found a whole stack of hand drawn pictures that would eventually wind up in print in the newspaper so I "liberated" a couple ( and also the paper with the illustration) we burned everything in the factory so this is a one of a kind item....pretty cool I think.I brought back tons of Iraqi stuff but I look at as junk, which made me think how many G.I's in WW2 thought the same thing.

Moderators feel free to delete this if you think it violates the no-politics rule.

A great piece. i am not sure if the forum section is the right one, but it has a place on the forum

I would suggest... box up ALL your souvenirs... and look at them again in 20 years.

I stupidly traded away all my souvenirs for German stuff when I was still in the Army and the couple of years that followed.

Nowdays I would kill to get it all back.

Dont trade or give any of it away... today its junk... in 20 years you will want it for the den.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
