good story of what happens AFTER a Marine is wounded.

somewhat sad and disjointed. very personal. interesting read.. guy is funny because he thinks he did good things in Iraq and that he helped the Iraqi people.

looking back from 2013, when hundreds a week are killed in sectarian violence. after we caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands... it is just sad.
