I was a contractor in Iraq and while I was there I lost 26 friends! Mostly American and South African! I am truly blessed to have made it out in one piece, can't say the same for my brain, which goes back to Iraq every night in my dreams....I miss you guys and gals. Thank you for your sacrifice! God Bless your families who still suffer! And all those who made it home... For we will never be the same... We have it so good here in America and so many people take it for granted.... Just wish they can see what I have seen! God Bless America!
