TO KEEP MY MEN ALIVE

“I am a Christian, but my time in Iraq has convinced me that God doesn’t want to hear from me anymore. I’ve done things that He can never forgive. I’ve done them consciously. I’ve made decisions I must live with for years to come. I am not a victim. In each instance, I heard my conscience call for restraint, I told it to shut the fuck up and let me handle my business. All the sins I’ve committed, I’ve done with one objective: to keep my men alive.” David Bellavia, House to House: An Epic Memoir of War
