Title: Blame
Rating: M (Suitable for ages 16 and above)
Disclaimers: Names given in this story are fictional and any relation to actual persons, living or dead, is purely incidental.
Story summary: An infantryman cannot cope with losing friends in combat. Fort Lewis, Washington, January, 2009.
Author's Note: Warning for graphic description of gunshot wounds and suicide. This story is based on several events and people I encountered while I was on active duty. There is no happy ending here but this is deliberate. I intend no disrespect with this work of fiction. Don't read this story if you're in a good mood.

Story summary: A Military Policeman learns about the realities of combat medicine while on guard duty. Mosul, Iraq, 2007.
Author's Note: Any factual errors that occur within are my own. This story is inspired by tales brought home by former colleagues after their deployment to Iraq. It is, I think, a fairly fitting Memorial Day piece

Original pen-date: 10 March 2010
Summary: A 1st Cav soldier struggles to adjust to a life he never wanted. Texas 2008.
Author's Note: This is a dark piece that has been lurking around my brain for some time. It is a collective recollection of the soldiers who suffered burns in combat, many of whom I encountered as patients during my tour at BAMC. If anyone deserves to be called heroes, they do.
