Time passes! A number of years later, while deployed to Iraq with the 25th Infantry Division's 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, he requested that I send him his Wrist Rocket. It seemed that when they drove down this certain street, the Iraqi kids threw rocks at the Strykers. So, being the nice guy that my son is, he returned their rocks, just at a much higher velocity. The Battalion Commander failed to see the humor in this form of "Winning the Hearts and Minds of the Locals" and confiscated the slingshot!! It was returned when they moved to another area. Thanks. Col. Paine!!
Seems fair and a good idea to me to return the little bastards rocks quickly.
