Even though I did not get anything for my birthday this year...it is 1000% better than last year's. I was in my first IED attack. For obvious reasons, the picture cannot be posted. I had a buddy take a photo for me afterwards (when they towed it back to our FOB). I was at an aid station getting my ears checked out from the blast (was bleeding from my right ear).
Okay...so I feel the need to say Happy Birthday to myself one last time before my 29 1/2 birthday this coming October. I know you may ask why I celebrate two birthdays per year now. If you've ever had the pleasure of experiencing an IED attack...on your birthday...it'll make you feel the need to celebrate "your" personal holiday that much more.
