Abstract I chose to write this thesis because I am the only one that can write it. In particular, I wanted to challenge the idea that officers write the histories of wars. I was an enlisted person, and wanted to tell a concise story about my experiences of combat. I hope to create a readable, short, memoir that people can enjoy and reference in the future. I hope that sometime in the future after all the post 9/11 veterans voices have been silenced by time, that a young Wesleyan students might discover my thesis and use it for more important work.
