4 MAR 04

This is my GAS Mask. I just got all my stuff back from Iraq. It's almost been a year since my accident. It still has Iraq dust all over it. I remember when the War first started, and we were in An Najaf. A SCUD alarm went off and we had to put on all of our protective gear. It was so hot, the sweat from my forhead was dripping into my eye's. It was stinging so bad that i thought i had been exposed to a nerve or blister agent. Thank GOD it was only sweat.

Aubrey, even w/out the story this would be an image that immediately grabs attention and holds it. The story just enhances it. Thanks for sharing :)
