Assumption of Command

Michael has a very eventful day.

Michael (A day in Iraq) has one heck of a day. First his son is born, then a roadside bomb turns into a chase.

I guess I wanted to be able to tell my son that on the day of his birth, we were in a fight against the bad guys. In reality, I should’ve wanted to be safe and sound in the confines or our FOB, but which story do you think my son would rather hear one day? Apologizing for not being there for his birth, I wanted to be able to tell him I was busy fighting like hell for something good.
Go and Congratulate him! That is an Order! :)
