I just bought my kommandos and will be getting them ready tonight.
My deployment will be in honor of Chris. I was his teacher when he was little boy. He was quiet, thoughtful, and kind. He also died as a result of small arms fire in Ramadi last June. He was only 21.
I'll be deploying in 29 Palms, CA, a town that is home to the largest US Marine base in the world. We have already lost close to two hundred soldiers.
