The Things I Carried…
Pretty self explanatory. These are the things I had in Iraq.
The firearms aren’t the actual firearms I had (they don’t let you take those home), but ones like them. As for the bible; I’m not an overly religious person. The night before I left, my gear was all packed up in the garage waiting to be loaded into my truck for the drive to the bus that would take me to the plan that would take me to Kuwait to wait for war to break out.
My (ex)wife put the bible into my ruck without my knowledge. She isn’t overly religious, either. I suppose she was buying insurance….
