That being said, the book is interesting, and I enjoyed it. It was striking to me how similar to Vietnam this account was. While, the author didn't see as many enemy soldiers as his forbearers in Southeast Asia, they still lived with booby-traps, an enemy who didn't wear a uniform, a life on a base that had some creature comforts, but also a lack of AC and its share of critters.
While the author doesn't bring this up, it is so odd to me how our daily lives back here in the States went on with scarcely an interruption from the war in Iraq, while he and his comrades were sweating IEDs, losing friends, fighting camel spiders, sweltering in heat we Americans have no concept of, and trying to help an Iraqi people who, in many ways, were indifferent to his efforts. My heartfelt thanks to the author and his fellow Marines for their service. We, your countrymen, know so little of what you go through, yet owe you all a profound debt.
Thank you for your service, Outlaws!
