What's A Nice Girl Like You . . . .

"The first time you get blown up by an IED, you're like, Dude, this is badass! but after that you're like, This really is not cool at all anymore. But riding out there, getting shot at, shooting back -- that doesn't get old."

From the real world. Read the whole thing on Notes From Downrange, "Spec. Alison K: I Guess I've Done My Duty." We guess so too.

After looking further into the specialist's story and hearing from other soldiers in 2-2 ID, I'm all but certain she was making up large parts of what she told me. I would appreciate it if you would remove the link, since spreading the story only denigrates the real sacrifices of 2-2 ID's soldiers.

Thank you,
Wesley Morgan
