"take all your friends and all your family all the people you hold dear to your heart and close to you.... all the feelings you have ever felt for anyone ... and forget them all bc you aren't gonna see them for a year.... now all in one day... leave the place that you love... your home, your country, your state, your town, your life.... your car, your dog... everything... then once you have done that stick yourself with 52 other people that you will be living with for the next year of your life.... people from all different religions, beliefs ...thoughts ..theories... diff everything... people that you won't necesarily like but you will get along bc ...hey you have a year to spend with the asshole... then take your relationship if you have one and put it on a wire bc it WILL be teeter tottering on the edge bc your gf /bf wife/husband won't understand a thing that you are going through and will make up excuses as to why they are doing whatever it is that they do and you know what ... you will either lose that person or the stress will be unbearable bc no matter what you tell them they will allways be right and you have to not piss THEM off bc THEY have all the power...next... add the 130 degree heat and winds that feel like an oven is on ...constant details and getting screwed over by commanding officers and non commisioned officers...
if you drink or smoke well that sux bc there isnt any of that where im at...throw in some iraqi kids and some gun shots and explosions and rocket attacks and you might have a lil of what i go through on a day to day basis...." ~Matt

No a friend of mine didn't write this. I found this in a community here on LJ. It's funny how someone writes something that can relate to almost everyone here.

Wanna add me to your friends list? This is Natasha. I give you my best, even if you don't want to add me.

I found you from your name... darkenrahl... the new book is out in November...
I give you thoughts and the best of wishes... many of "mine" are over there, some came back and didn't, and some never will, and some... well, you have my wishes for the best.

thanks for letting me know when the new book comes out. i will be waiting for it cause it seems that the army wants to send me back to iraq again. but thank yuo for your kind words and it feels good to know that there are people out there who don't know me but are writing something meaningful to me. it makes me feel good. Again thank you for your support. :)

anytime. I know how much of life you are missing. I also know you are doing something I can't. I wouldn't survive in the armed forces with my independant personality.
What made you pick darkenrahl of all the characters for a tag name?
