I know it has been a while since I have blogged, which is a shame because I have a lot of stuff to talk about but just have not had the time. However I wanted to take a few minutes and put up this video. This one pulled at me pretty hard and really put a lump in the back of my throat and a tear in my eye. I can’t imagine the hell this young man has went through in the days since this horrific attack. I am so glad he is still here and able to share his story as it could very easily help others thinking about taking the “easy way out”.

In August 2005, Marine Lance Cpl. Travis Williams and his squad were sent on a rescue mission in Barwanah, Iraq. En route, their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. Of Travis’ entire 12-person team, he alone survived. Here, Travis reflects on the hours and days after the explosion, as well as his life now, and pays tribute to the men he left behind.
