"There was more chatter about the Kenyan sitting in front of me who had been in the Army for a couple years. The other soldiers said he should get automatic citizenship for volunteering to fight, and we all agreed. The soldier came straight from Kenya into our Army. Did not even pass GO, and suddenly was in Iraq."
This sounds like one of the soldiers we had at our house three Thanksgivings ago. He was an AIT grad from Kenya who has won a state department lottery online, and came here from Kenya and his first action was to join the Army and sign up to become a medic! What a sweetheart! Was the Kenyan you met a medic? Tell him his "folks" in San Antonio told him Hello!"
