I was in Portland yesterday finishing up a vacation. Our flight was cancelled and I stood in line behind a US soldier on his way back to Afganistan. Turns out we were all stranded overnight in Portland. The soldier and I were talking about what we might do while waiting for our rescheduled flight. He told me the only clothes he had were his uniforms so he couldn't go downtown. When I asked him why he stated if he went downtown in his uniform people would spit on him. The story broke my heart. What the hell is going on in this country.
