Writing on his blog “War Inside My Head” Sky Soldier brings readers up to date on his trip home to Michigan on leave, describes some contrasts between here and there, and describes rain and mud in all of its splendor.
From the part about rain: “There is really nothing quite like standing in a truck with the top half of your body sticking out rolling down the road and getting rained on. If you do not cover every square inch of your face it feels as if hundreds of tiny ice daggers are stabbing you in the face. If you don’t believe me try sticking your head out of your car window next time it rains. If you really do this and tell me that you did it I am going to point at you and laugh, best to just take my word for it, really.” [Source]
