They carried me from the medical tent to a more secure indoor compound. My eyes were closed. I heard a female voice.
“He looks like a hippie... Are you a hippie or something?”
Another marine spoke to me, “So do you speak Pashto?”
I shook my head ‘no.’
“Do you speak Farsi?”
...nope...
“Dari”
...no way...
“Why do you have this job?” A gust of air through my lifeless throat mumbled.
“I have no idea why I have this job.”

    This true tale is both a fast-paced adventure story and a touchi

    This true tale is both a fast-paced adventure story and a touching yet humorous coming-of-age story. It is a window into the life and mind of a young Christian man in his 20s who is unemployed after attending film school and the unconventional travels that ensue due to his discomfort in this time of transition. Sirens, Standbys, and the Search for Something is a poignant tale of the self-discovery and absolute nonsense that every young adult seems to go through before settling into adult life. This is a truly unique read, a look into a world unlike any other.
