Maggie Martin deployed once to Kuwait and twice to Iraq.  She was a part of the initial invasion in 2003.  “I think about the kids I met in the market that were 10, 11, 12 years old that are now 14,15, 16 year old young men who have had an occupation in their country their whole adolescence and I wonder what it must be like for them having their whole childhood destroyed by this war and the occupation and I’m sure all the happy little kids that were there in 2003 that were getting candy from us and standing on the side of the road, are probably now a large part of the Iraqi resistance and I don’t blame them.”
