11. and the news from a REAL soldier is far different.
USA-- It was like a long trip to hell that you knew you might return from. Of course it is as bad as the soldiers say it is. Hell its even worse if the truth has to come out. Its a constant fu..ing nightmare trying to figure out where the guerillas are going to hit, how to keep the civilians calm, and also getting enough water and food to eat. That is one thing the media never really told the Americans about, how bad it was when our convoys werent getting through. We had to go to some Iraqi people and trade socks and underwear for some food and a little water
