Rollins Dispatches: Letters from a soldier...

Hey what's up. No fun and games tonight. I am going to give you a link to one of Henry Rollins' dispatches. In this dispatch, Henry passes on several letters from a soldier who is currently putting his ass on the line for us over in Iraq.

I hope you will read this story and think about what it says.

When I read these kinds of stories I always feel so helpless and weak and impotent. I wish there was something I could do for those guys over there. It makes me feel ashamed for the problems that I complain about, sitting here comfortable in my cushy life.

I can't believe the shit our guys go through over there in Iraq.

This is the real deal, not the BS you get on the news.

Here it is: DISPATCHES: Letters From a Soldier

I would like to suggest that you check out the 'Worthy Causes' links down there to the right. There are several good links there that will help you support our Men and Women in the Service. Thank you.

That was intense. Some of the Marines here have been in the shit recently. Most of these guys are logistics support. They go over there to put armor kits onto different kinds of vehicles. But they run into all kids of shit.

Some former soldiers I know have run through this kind of shit too.

But the consensus is that we're not fighting the war we need to be fighting. Fucking politics.

Glad that you found the letters a worthwhile read. They are from my buddy who was stationed in Ramadi with the Army. I passed them along to Henry so he could post them in an attempt to shed a different light on the situation there. So thanks for passing along the link.
Letters From the Desert
