Dear John

"The truth comes out," I said.
"That's the funny thing about the truth," sha said. "It's usually does"

I've met geniuses and idiots, but when all is said and done, we do what we do for one another. For friendship. Not for country, not for patriotism, not because we're programmed killing machines, but because of the guy next to you. You fight for your friend, to keep him alive, and he fights for you, and everything about the army is built on this simple premise.

Time is relative. <...> I read a bit of the latest Stephen King novel, showered and threw on pair of jeans and a polo, then read for another couple of hours before glancing at the clock and realizing only twelve minutes had past. That's what I meant by time being relative.

But... as bad as it was, I learned something about myself. That I could go through something like that and survive, I mean, I know it could have been worse - a lot worse - but for me, it was all I could have handled at the time. And I learned from it.
