Korengal Valley Firefight




this is where my brother is, and, I assume, what he's up to.

I don't have the words to describe how disturbed it makes me that this is the life he sought; however, on the other hand, I have great admiration for anyone who takes off, gets out of civilization, and lives on a mountaintop in a monastic-style barebones campground as these young men are doing. they live so close to the earth.

just with guns.

I wonder what he thinks about all of it.

to be fair, this is not his platoon. His platoon is represented by the guy in the I Love New York boxer shorts shooting at the Taliban. Yeah, literally. Glenn said he worried he would get in trouble for that, but his chain of command had a sense of humor about it.
