The Main Street/Clinton Street Bridge no has a name, the "Desert Storm Veteran's Bridge" in honor of the veterans from the Springfield Area as well as all the veterans that served during Iraq Desert Storm conflict period.

    For every one who died, seven came home with injuries and forty came home with PTSD. That's an intolerably high price to pay for believing that we were saving America from Iraq.

    And a large number of them are not receiving the treatment they deserve.

    At least we did save Wall Street by spending $24 trillion, so maybe it's a wash....

  2. And guys like Doug Johnston and Robbie Blish - who went to Desert Storm - get crapped on by idiot comments that are hardly "polite and on-topic"

    Yeah, if any of those guys comment here, we'll be all over them...


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
