A Light Goes Out

December 17, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

A retiring medical officer I served with on both my deployments will be publishing a book detailing his observations of the Iraq war. He asked me to review it and perhaps add some of my own experiences and observations.

One of his chapters regards a wonderful young Iraqi man, who operated a successful cigar shop outside our camp in 2005. The chapter ends with his murder by insurgents. Even more sadly, it was done within sight of his own young son.

One of the few lights penetrating the darkness of that country has been extinguished.
