    Why would one want to be buried as an American, if you have been deported, after you have “dutifully” served the Stars and Stripes? Number two, were you falsely misled by a recruiter about “automatic American citizenship” if you enlisted? Recruiters had quotas to meet, and were prone to offering pie in the sky when they knew dang well the promise(s) were false!! Thirdly, why are your deletos (indescretions) not forgiven after you have placed yourself in harms way for your believed adopted country?

    That is too sad for me to watch right now. Maybe tomorrow. I sure do agree with the first comment.
