Yup, as usual, I'm up to something. I'm researching a character for a new novel and need some more perspective. I've been working with CCain and reading a couple books (gut wrenching books I might add) and would love some personal thoughts or events on military life in general, both on and off the fields.
Now, I understand, certain things are not pleasant to bring to the surface and probably are best not posted on the open forum. All I would love to hear is an event, something that stuck in your mind, any kind of event. I'm looking for a little insight into military men. Yes, men, because my character is a guy. I know there are lots of women out there serving, but I need to have images and thoughts from the male point of view.
It can be a couple of sentences or more, I don't care. Hell, tell me about boot camp. Tell me about the moment you decided to join, tell me about the moment you entered a war zone. Tell me about coming home. If you're not comfortable posting, send me a PM. I will not use the statements for anything but help in building my character.
