By 2008-2009, during my year on the ground in Baghdad, nearly every window and building in my AO had bullet holes in it. There were multiple rocket and mortar marks in every other building. Thousands of professional Soldiers, Paratroopers, Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Guardsmen were maimed and murdered by Iraqis, Iranians, and many other foreign soldiers and mercenaries.
Let that sink in… Learn to fight now… Or die trying later.
Give the names of these brave men and women a read.
