War is real
I am a soldier by choice and a writer by necessity. I have already been to Iraq once and am preparing to go a second time in the fall of 2005. These are my stories, my thoughts and my fears as I prepare to fight and make my long journey to the “sandbox”
This is the description of an American soldier with post traumatic disorder syndrome. In a way I feel faced with reality when reading some of the things that this anonymous soldier writes:
I’m not for or against war, but you can bet if you’re in front of someone who doesn’t know whether to kill you or turn around and think war is wrong you’re going to shoot them as fast as I do. Yes, I have killed people and I will do it again because it is my job and if it is them or you, I am totally sure it will be them.
