Hello again. I'm back. The experience of not-blogging was strange for me, but I think I'm a better person for it. More about that later.
OTOH, we lost a soldier/blogger recently. This is his final post. An excerpt:
I suppose I should speak to the circumstances of my death. It would be nice to believe that I died leading men in battle, preferably saving their lives at the cost of my own. More likely I was caught by a marksman or an IED. But if there is an afterlife, I'm telling anyone who asks that I went down surrounded by hundreds of insurgents defending a village composed solely of innocent women and children. It'll be our little secret, ok?
You know you would have loved that guy if you'd known him in life. Here's to the afterlife.
