Four Months with Xerxes

I’ve now been confined for four months. It doesn’t seem that long…surprisingly, time passes quickly. Two deployments have trained me well in the art of keeping busy and not focusing on the separation from loved ones. Hopefully, I can keep this mindset going.

Speaking of mindsets…

There’s this guard here who’s about 6-foot-a-million-inches. One of the inmates told him he looked like Xerxes. His response?

“Who is that? Is that a terrorist? I’m not a terrorist!”

Apparently someone needs to watch “300.” He’s probably the only Soldier in the US Army who doesn’t have a bootleg copy of it on his external hard drive.
