Advice to Soldiers Calling Home November 4, 2008Posted by Rusty in Uncategorized.

Last night Brock called me. Does he not know that you should never, ever …. EVER tell your mother that you were under attack … and then describe the sound of the missile (Mortar? I dunno.) that only missed your head by 12-15 inches. Then, under no circumstances tell her it was the scariest thing you have ever heard. Please, refrain from mentioning it hit next to the gym. Most of all, the following conversation is not comforting in any way, shape or form:
“I screamed ‘Everybody get down!!’ and someone yelled back ‘You’re the only one left standing!’ “
Ugh. It’s difficult to carry on a normal conversation after hearing that.
