That was where I learned what my body was truly capable of. Ubaydi, Iraq 5 days straight, minimal down time, door to door, then to evac almost a 10k ruck out from the city after dark with full combat loads. That will seperate the mind and body further than anything else I’ve ever experienced. I carry it to my day to day life now
I feel you brotha. Baghdad, Mosul, Tikrit, and Falluja.
Thank you both for your service . its what you have done ,that make it possible for the rest of us to do what we do…
