As I read the first chapters, my mind kept going back to my pre-deployment for Iraq. I was eager and naive (in the sense that I couldn't possibly know what to expect). This is the state of mind we find Zeller and his fellow soldiers, knowing that, even after they completed their grueling, mind-numbing training, there was still the specter of Afghanistan looming on the horizon. At the beginnings of the chapters, there are black and white photos of Matt and his teammates, many of whom were friends and associates I'd helped train before my retirement. I couldn't help feel for them, knowing that they would never be the same within a year.
Matt soon finds himself in harm's way, pinned down by enemy fire; he's scared, but he's more scared that he will let down his comrades than get shot. Once again, I can identify with this. I recognize the stages that my troops and I went through 5 years before, in a different sandbox.Read more ›
