I was in a band that entertained US military personnel stationed abroad! We went there after bases were set up! Was actually there for the 4th time when 9/11 happened! Watched it on TV from the other side of the planet-it was surreal! It was really a mess there on the first trip! Land mines everywhere!!!!!! We went through a town called Brcko that the aftermath was really bad! The Serbs came through and pretty much shot up everything! There is no clarity in that war! There's really no clarity historically in the region! So many people's have marched through that territory and controlled it! Persians, Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, etc....! I remember seeing an interview with a local (serb) saying how great it was to finally have their village back! The news reporter asked when they lost control of the village and the guy answered 600 years ago!
