Wade Eric Christiansen-Afghanistan 2009-2010

I remember I was falling down backwards. I’m looking at the sky and it felt like a daydream. I was thinking this is what it would feel like if you got blown up. I looked over at the wall that was just next to me, and that thing was blown out. I was on the ground and we started taking small arms fire from the triggermen. I couldn’t see anything out my left eye and I could barely see out my right one, but I returned fire as best as I could. After I was done shooting, I was looking down at my rifle and remember blood pouring out all over it. The leader of the patrol got both his legs blown off and was blown into a ditch. The medic pulls him out and starts working on him, but he was really, really, bad. He looked at the medic and said, “Tell my wife I love her,” and just faded off. I didn’t have a lot of thoughts really. So I just lay back down. All I remember is the blue sky and just saying “To hell with it."

Hunter, this is looking much better technically. You seem to have more control of the highlights than in previous scans.

Really turning into a powerful project Hunter, one that I hope you continue and start showing. This has a lot of pull in this day and age and could be well received.
