Yahoo (AP) | Kilt-Wearing Marine Plays Bagpipes in Iraq

FALLUJAH, Iraq – Amid the clatter of gunfire and explosions that regularly rock this city, an unexpected sound rises over the front line — bagpipes.

Dressed in Marine fatigues with his gun at his side, 1st Sgt. Dwayne Farr, 36, blows into his set of pipes. The plaintive wail is carried by the wind that whips across this dust-blown, war-torn town.

“Playing on the battlefield — I never thought that would happen,” Farr said.

Haven’t the people of Iraq suffered enough?
