Transcript

“Most of the gentlemen I had been talking to had been there during the first Gulf War, either as, some of them were children, or teenagers. And a couple of the older ones may have been in the army. None of them, I can’t recall any of them in the army. But, they had grown an appreciation, I think, for the Americans when we went in and liberated their country and gave it back to them. Because there was a lot of mistreatment going on. And I think at that time they felt a big debt of gratitude. I noticed it in 1999 when I first went over there. And it stayed, that debt of gratitude seemed to show throughout my time, all the way [to] my last trip there in 2002.”

In this video, a retired Army major discusses positive Kuwaiti and American relations.
