Letters from Iraq

Posted in My Iraq history by Larry on June 14, 2008

This is a little bit of an experiment. I am tinkering around with putting letters that I have from when I fought in the Iraq war up on my blog. They are pretty interesting. At the time of writing these letters the last thing on my mind was whether someone other than my wife would be reading these letters so they can be a little sloppy.

In the truck we were suppose to wear our helmets but usually we took them off if the truck was stopped. (more…)

Writing excerise: The Frozen Attack

Posted in Uncategorized, Writings by Larry on June 3, 2008

This is a writing exercise that I did today. I just wrote a random scene to get words on the page.

Mike kicked back and flung himself against the wall. With a sudden crash his lungs collapsed momentarily from the force of the impact. He wasn’t expecting that, although he had one thing going for him, his plan to remove himself from view of the window had worked flawlessly.
