Our buddy, Scotty, hunted down this clown, Keith Keeton, who apparently won the Gulf War all by himself. The story he tells is that, as a staff sergeant, he was receiving the surrender of an Iraqi general when he was shot by his Saudi translator’s pistol (the first victim of a green-on-blue attack), earning a Purple Heart, and as an engineer, he killed an Iraqi T-72 tank, despite the fact that Engineers don’t have an anti-armor capability once they leave the cover of the infantry unit to which they’re attached.

Scotty has more on the clown.
