Gulf War Echoes

Roger J. Spiller’s Gulf War retrospective ("A War Against History") was a good essay on a multifaceted war (February/ March). To me the most engaging story of the conflict was the fact that the U.S. Marine Corps experienced a historical first. For the first time in its history, a father and son fought side by side under fire. They were Gunnery Sgt. George Clark and his son, Lance Cpl. Kevin Clark, of Kansas City, members of TOW Platoon, 2d Tank Batallion, 2d Marine Division. Semper Fi!
