As the saying goes, “I’ve been around the world twice, talked to everyone once. I’ve been beat up, blown up and stabbed, shot at and missed, Shit at and hit.” The good news is that I’m still here to tell the tale, and if I don’t say so myself, it is amusing as hell. Or as my readers say “Politically incorrect & laugh out loud funny.” This book is view of the Iraq war that not many normal civilians get to see. So if you lost your personality in card game, you’re really thin skinned or easily offended. DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!! This book is a compilation of emails that were written and sent off to friends and family while the author was working in Iraq as a security contractor from 2003 -2006. From the onslaught of positive responses from everyone encouraged him to continue sending the accounts of his daily life & activities in the sand box in the form of emails, letters & Stories. This is how this book came into reality. War time humor , if such a thing even exists .
