- Ronald Reagan

The air operations of Operation Iraqi Freedom began 11 years ago today, followed by the official start of ground operations 2 days later. We will always remember the courage and the bravery of our troops, and we will never forget our debt of gratitude to all of you, especially the wounded and the Fallen. We pray for you and your families every day. May God bless you all.

Yeah, I can never forget that day. That's my anniversary. Not to mention MH had already been there for three months before the "war" started.
However, I am happy to report that while made of titanium, I am not, nor have I ever played one on tv, a robot.
