Iraqi girlfriends capture GI hearts

Everywhere American GI’s go they end up marrying the women. It is always discouraged by both the local power-that-be and the military.

The bureaucratic maze to be navigated is incredible and both parties are counseled repeatedly that such unions never work out.

Sometimes they do. My Thai wife and I will have been married for 32 years tomorrow.

I wish them the best. Been there, done that, have the T-shirt.
