Here’s a study on how being a member of the Iraq Veterans Against the War can change you from an average veteran proud of your service into a blubbering idiot. Our buddy, Rochester Veteran, posted this article about three ladies who manned machine guns on their teams’ Hummers back in 2004-2005 in Iraq. One in particular, Robyyn Murray was very enthusiastic about her job;
“They (the Iraqis) used to get really confused,” said Spc. Robyn L. Murray, a civil affairs specialist from Niagara Falls, N.Y. “I was the first. I volunteered on the second day we were here.”
The civil affairs team that Murray was assigned to needed a gunner who knew how to use a squad automatic weapon. Murray said she jumped at the opportunity to “man” the machine gun in the turret.
In 2008, I posted this video of Murray, who is still chipper and matter-of-fact about how she enjoyed her tour of Iraq;
Earlier this year, I found this video of Murray standing next to Matthis and Elaine Brower while Matthis burned a flag in Lafayette Park, DC;
This morning someone sent me this video of Murray-as-drama-queen reading a poem while she blubbers about her finger being on a trigger…that job she so enthusiastically volunteered for a few years back;
