HOOAH Resume

Posted by on Dec 19, 2011 in 2011, Choken Word, Headline, Peace, Survival, WAR


U.S. Army infantry.
I raised my hand
in two thousand two.
I signed up to get some.
How about you?

Four tours in Iraq.
One in Afghanistan.
I lost friends.
I lost my wife.
I lost my home.
I lost my rights.


To find employment where my ability to take pain and not complain make me an asset.
To use my years of experience taking and protecting life to serve and protect my community.


Guard duty.
Police calls.
Burning shit.
Taking orders.
Standing in formation for hours.
Shouting HOOAH!
Bandaging wounds.
Not getting killed.


Expert M16, AR15, 9mm, 50cal.
Hand to hand combat.
Breaking bones with sticks and stones.
Words will never hurt me.
