"I'm writing from the airport in Atlanta to vent some of my sadness and grief. I’m going through all the same feelings I did when I left Iraq in January, but I have some new light to shed on my hatred for the army and for my situation. I believe it’s a result of my inability to express my love for my wife Holly because of our separation. I’ve been buying her lots of things, but I know they are scant in comparison to what I should be doing. My ineptitude is caused by my deployment and -unable to love, I express my passion for her through hatred for the army."

[American Iraq war veteran]
