To start, I feel the need to clarify some things:
I am not in the military.
With that being said, some of the things in here may seem unrealistic to veterans of combat who pick this up and read it. For instance, when it cones to basic training, I know I’ve left quite a bit of information and processes out. However, I’ve actually done a fair share of research and have done my absolute best to paint a decent picture of life in the military.
Just know that I’m allowed a little bit of creative freedom, but I do not intend to shame nor put the United States Armed Forces to shame.
Also, be warned. There are extremely graphic depictions of war violence in this book. There is also coarse language and some may find “unsavory” opinions on cultures. This is here only for characterization.
This is also a novella, a short story I ported from Wattpad to Microsoft Word and now to here. The formatting may be a little off, but just bare with me.
