I talk to you now because I can, because I must...........There are great minds all over this planet. I cannot describe my experince in Iraq or the war on terror, please, do not ask me too. I will not, mine is a personal battle. One that transcends life or death. I have seen too much, felt too much, both for my fellow soldiers and for the civilians I have seen victimized by this horrible conflict.
I only wish to say this...................................
SINCE 2003 I HAVE FACED AND SEEN DEATH, FROM BOTH SIDES. IT IS NOT WHAT EITHER OF OUR SIDES WISH. I HAVE HELD MUSLIM CHILDREN IN MY ARMS AS THEY DIED WITH TEARS IN MY EYES AND SADNESS IN MY HEART! I HAVE HELD FELLOW AMERICANS AND NATO SOLDIERS IN MY ARMS AS THEY DIED WITH PURE SADNESS IN MY SOUL. THIS CANNOT, AND MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE. I PLEDGE MY SOUL TO THIS CAUSE.
LOVE ALWAYS, AN AMERICAN SOLDIER,
