The Long Road Home from Afghanistan
As we stacked hundreds of duffel bags and ruck sacks on the driveway just off Doughboy Loop, I remembered pretty vividly a group of Soldiers doing the same thing seven months earlier. At that time, we were getting ready to head to Afghanistan, from where th...

#FortDix  
Having arrived in New Jersey from the Arabia Time Zone, I find myself awake at 3:00 am the first few mornings, though the time doesn't correspond with anything that suggests I should be waking up at that time eight hours ahead. But I take advantage by running. It's colder here than in Kuwait.

his is the final part in a four-part series commemorating the Second Battle of Fallujah, which took place in November, 2004. 

Operation Phantom Fury had begun by the end of the first week of November. Within a month the Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi troops had secured every corner of the city that its previous masters had described as the “cemetery for Americans.”
