War Diary: Aileen Gentry

On February 27, 1991, President Bush Sr. announced the end of war in Iraq, and Aileen Gentry celebrated. Her son, Army Staff Sgt. Kenneth Gentry, had been serving in the Gulf for months. Several days later, Aileen learned her son had been killed just hours before the Bush announcement. This is her installment in the NPR War Diary series.
