Forgive my suspicion; I am sure that being a military man you will understand.
I noticed in your introduction that you have been in the miltary since 1998 - that's 6 years now. It seems strange you have not already discovered this information in that time.
Also I have noticed that you have trouble with spelling and grammar - this strikes me as odd for someone who has attained the rank of SGT and must have some official paperwork on a fairly regular basis.
Just something that struck me. That's all.
"u.v.ray is an uncompromising writer who glares at the world with bloodshot eyes. He gazes into the abyss and sees jewels of tragedy, comedy, cruelty, heroism, tenderness, darkness, grit and futility. We Are Glass is a searing collection of seventeen razor-sharp short stories; a very fine collection indeed." -- Paul D. Brazill. www.uvray.moonfruit.com
