I was in Iraq from 06-07 when we thought the deployment was almost over we got extended to 15 months, then I volunteered to stay another month.

Don't know if this is anger, helplessness or whatever...
Had a car accident back on April 11th in the am. Thought I was ok but even today I've not recalled the seconds that I've lost during the accident.
