Just saw these pictures for the first time in years. It's hard to believe it has been 12 years since I first deployed and 8 years ago, I was last in Iraq. Iraq was an strange time in my life. A lot of different highs and lows. I saw my first combat casualties there, June 6 2011. I made some good friends I still talk to, and learned to at least occasionally act like an adult. This was also the year I decided to take a solo trip every year no matter what, to get away and try to realign myself and remember what's important, and hold onto what I have while I'm still alive.
