My friend tank commander U.S. Marine Gunnery Sgt. (Ret.) Nick "Gunny Pop" Popaditch reminds us (from his Facebook page) 10 years ago today the U.S. Marine Corps rolled into Baghdad, Iraq ...

10 years ago in Baghdad. Great Day. Cpl Eddie Chin, MSgt Leon Lambert, Cpl Reilly, and Doc Rose tore down Saddam in Firdos Square. First small step in long journey to liberation for the Iraqi people. First day of a new alliance with a new free Iraq. End of Saddam Regime and Baath Party control. Symbol of victory over Republican Guard. Great job, Marines. Glad I had a good view. — with Edward Chinand Leon Lambert — with Edward Chin and Leon Lambert in Baghdad, Iraq.

Later in battle "Gunny Pop" would lose an eye. Since retiring from the Corps he has made attempts to run for political office in California.

Thanks again to Nick, the Marine Corps, the Army, Navy, Air Force, and all who served. We won't ever forget.
