Book Excerpt

“Cupcake,” he wept. Over and over, while wallowing in the same clothes he left the hospital in. His hair was unkempt, and his beard and side burns looking more like poorly trimmed muttonchops. He wanted to send a text to the guys back in Kuwait to let them know one of three things: He was going to be late getting back, he quit, or he was going to kill himself. The latter he did actually think about. Briefly. Then he realized the reason why he felt so bad would be a moot point if he were dead. Then he remembered he had no phone.
