Corpus Christi, Texas — Spring Break 2008
It was as if the war never happened.
Michael Goss was a sergeant in the Army and did two tours in Iraq. Now he is a cage fighter.
The last guy I fought was scared of me when he heard that I had four kids and did two tours in Iraq.
He knows something about pain too. When he signs his emails he writes, “Fear is temporary, but regret is forever.”
On his second tour of Iraq, he was charged with aiding the enemy after he gave some Iraqi boys surplus for their village. He says he was just trying to help. CID investigated and he was eventually chaptered out of the army.
They gave him ten days to clear Ft. Hood. He slept with his wife and four kids in the car.
Home for me is a sound state of mind: normal.
When I was kicked out, everybody was looking at me–my wife, my kids–but I didn’t know what to do. The Army was my life.
America still means a lot to me.
