I was leaving Seattle when I found this gentleman. He had recently come back from a tour of duty in Baghdad and I was so curious I just had to talk with him and get his impressions.
He said that war is hell, but he had to fulfill his duty which doesn’t surprise me. As much as I disagree with the reasons why they are there, I hope that both the soldiers and the people of Iraq can weather the current situation.
I was quite touched since he’s the first person I’ve ever met that is involved in a war, and talking to him he seemed pretty normal guy. I couldn’t help but wonder what would I do if I ever were in a similar situation.
