An Iraq War Memoir: Does My Suicide Vest Make Me Look Fat?

Iraq War Memoir

My Iraq War memoir, "Does My Suicide Vest Make Me Look Fat?" is available in paperback AND as an ebook in Kindle format.The foreword is by Dr. Mike Haynie of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, or IVMF, at Syracuse University.

A chronicle of the beginning of the Iraq War, when the US Military was flush with its success in toppling the regime of Saddam Hussein. The victory became tarnished as warring political and tribal factions transformed the “Land Between Two Rivers” into the Superbowl for terrorism.

Caught in this firestorm was a tiny, but determined, Civil Affairs unit that took on the momentous task of rebuilding schools, medical clinics, and mosques around the periphery of Baghdad International Airport, during 2003-2004. It’s the kind of effort the media never covered.

This is a chronicle of the insane, stupid, humorous, surreal, and tragic events that befell this band of brothers and sisters on their journey through Iraq Reconstruction.
