Iraq experiences left unforgettable images for Princeton soldier
Military veteran Jeremy Hinton of the Princeton area says the nightmares he has had because of experiences during his 10 1/2-month tour of duty in Iraq are infrequent now.
Those nightmares, he says, like the ones dealing with Iraqi insurgents attacking his location, and seeing body parts on the ground after an explosion, were frequent after he returned home from Iraq in early 2004. Hinton talked about those things during an interview last week, a little more than a week before this year’s Memorial Day.
Hinton served in Iraq as an activated National Guard soldier in Company A of the 134th Signal Battalion out of Inver Grove Heights.
Hinton said he won’t forget some of his Iraq war experiences and said they changed him. See more in exclusive story in the Princeton Union-Eagle by Joel Stottrup.
