I was in the Army, my unit was 556th mt co out of Ft. Riley. We were sent to the gulf near the end of Jan 91 and stayed at KKMC until Nov of that year. My unit was attatched to a nat'l gaurd batt. We were in charge of the equip that came back from Kuwait.

Since being back, I too had a bad temper. I also experience fatigue, joint pain and muscle aches. Trusting has also been quite a problem. Any one who was in my unit would understand this. I don't know why I'm very emotional about my memories, I did not experience any combat. If any one else has these feelings I'm sure I'll read about it. I am very proud to have served. I hope through my memories and with the support of friends, I can heal what ever it is that haunts me.
