  1. Merv Kaufman says:

    This is truly an extraordinary piece of writing: honest, raw and incredibly vivid. Kamber holds nothing back. Even his reflections on his return to “civilization” have pith—his realization that the war he experienced has been viewed with indifference by those he’s left behind. In this he has touched on issues that have plagued veterans for generations. You only know war if you’ve been there. For the rest of us, it’s mainly something to avoid thinking about. I wish our politicians could share a shred of Kamber’s experience. Perhaps, then, they might not be so quick to hustle troops to distant places with the misguided notion of bringing “democracy” to some tribal country that’s been waging intra-cultural wars for centuries.

  2. Haunting and harrowing. Vivid descriptions, and heartbreaking realities. It’s no wonder Michael had been nominated three times for a Pulitzer.
