Back from Iraq

Its interesting when you deploy to a foreign country while in the military. You train to fight and plan on doing your job. What you get is eye opening experience that will change a part of you forever. What you get is the full deal.

Something about a pointy nosed ass rocked going the sound of speed and a large slow AK round.  Oh well we shouldnt be surprised.

It was quiet, too quiet with the type of silence you hear at night when you can hear the blood rushing through your ears.
