No posts since September of 2011! I wonder if anyone is still here.

In case there are, here is a narrative of an anonymous Iraq war veteran. I compiled this from a series of forum posts by the individual and while I should note that I made some changes to improve organization, grammar, and clarity of language, I kept as much of the writer's own words as possible. Likewise, my only additions were to explain terminology or for transitions between topics. As such, this does not read like Shakespeare, but it is honest and direct.

I tried to contact the veteran who made the posts that I compiled into this narrative but he did not respond. While I did not obtain his permission to repost them, the original posts were made on a public forum which required no log-in, and I feel his story is one that can only benefit others if heard. I make no claim of ownership over these words, and merely wish to share them.

A veteran's account of his experience in Iraq. Includes harsh language.Collapse )
