Nine years ago today.

On March 20th, 2003, the US began its air campaign in Baghdad to open Operation Iraqi Freedom.

It was only suppossed to last for a few weeks.
Nine years later, will it ever end ?

Thank you ALL for Your Service and Sacrifices.

Semper Fi,
Rocky

Hmmm, strange. I remember watching footage of it on the tv in the recovery room the night my daughter was born, March 19,2003. Is this going off of the date in Iraq or the U.S.? Just curious because I've always associated it with the evening of the day my daughter was born on the 19th.

It was Baghdad time Brother and it was happening there, hence the offical date.

We were seeing it here on the 19th.

Thanks for clarifying for me, I figured that was what I was missing.
