Fun No Fun With Hand Grenades

One of my favorite personal MilBlogs (military blog) from Iraq Fun With Hand Grenades has called it quits, and deleted every single post he has ever written, and left just one. I have been reading his blog for four years and it is very sad to see him go like this. I don't know what to say about his time there besides he has been there a long time (stop-loss), it sounds like the worst place to be, and it is impossible to understand from here. Perhaps Vietnam vets can understand, because he leaves us with this quote from that era:
No matter how oft quoted or clichéd, it’s pure honesty is the best way to describe my experiences in Iraq:
“We are the unwilling led by the unqualified, doing the unnecessary for the ungrateful.”
Good luck dreadcow, get home soon.
