Overview

'They say your life can change in an instant; well, mine changed in a brilliant, almost blinding flash of orange and red fire. The sound was almost deafening. I remember thinking, That was a big one.

The vehicle stalled from the concussion, and it took a few seconds to clear the 'cobwebs' from my mind; everyone else was quiet for a brief moment.'

    If you wanted to know about the every day happenings in Iraq, This is a must read!

    want to tell you that I am not your average book reader but I read you book in two days and was at the edge of my seat every moment.

    I believe the Kosovo tour was kind of typical of what we do here but Iraq was a death trap. I guess you defied the odds because your chances of death increase everyday one remains in that country. And you went back. I salute you for your courage to go there and attempt to establish some administrative order. I seems to me though that those folks seem to accept death as an everyday occurance and their mind set will be hard to change.
