Brooklyn Marine Who Helped Bring Down Statue

Thu Apr 10, 2003 11:26 am

The Marine who help the people of Baghdad bring down the Statue of Saddam is the epitomy of the American story, a child of Immigrants from Burma who came to the US seeking a better life helps bring Freedom to Iraqis.

He's also from Dyker Heights, that's where my Grandmother lives Smile
