    The last time I saw David was at the US Consulate in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, in 1991 during Desert Storm. David was there with the US Ambassador to Kuwait in exile during the war. Amazing coincidence to be shipped half-way around the world and run into a fraternity brother!!! Congrats David

  • Sad to know that my family alma mater is so deep in the blood the U.S. has shed in Afghanistan and Iraq and lately in Pakistan. This will not be a legacy that is proudly remembered in the opinion of this history major.
