    Good, quick read

    A friend of mine from Iraq recommended this book and based on this recommendation I picked it up- it is NOT my typical fare.
    It was easy to read, quick, precise and on the money. At times it is frustrating- only because in so many ways you can relate to what the author is saying and you find yourself feeling a miniscule portion of the frustration LeBlue must have felt.
    Having worked in Iraq and taken incoming, I always found it frustrating that we could do nothing in retaliation. The insurgents knowing this took away their fear of retribution and therefore... why stop? If you have nothing to fear then what is the incentive to stop bombing Americans?

    I appreciate LeBlue not only sharing his experience but also pointing out the frustrations many I encountered had felt, including myself, when it came to a "kinder, gentler" war. I consider myself to be a moderate liberal and still understand where he is coming from, being as I have been here, albeit to a much, much lesser extent than he was involved.

    I appreciate his honesty and the raw emotion. I felt like I could see, feel and hear what was going on. When I left work today, the rocks and sand I was walking over had a different feel to them... I remembered what it was like before things calmed down.... and remembered his advice not to let your guard down.
