Welcome to SurvivalArtist.com
Welcome to my blog, SurvivalArtist.com. I am an Iraq Veteran. I original created SurvivalArtist.com to vent. To me it has become so much more. You see, I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
It is here, where I have discovered my voice.
The basic problems facing the world today are not susceptible to a military solution.

I served in the US Army, 216th MI CO, Kirkuk, Iraq, 2005. This blog is a creative mix of my best and worst recollections. I had my own experience, I will not glorify or exaggerate the truth. It is what it is. You won’t find exciting stories of combat heroics here. It just wasn’t like that. It was actually, for the most part, anti-climatic, stressful, physically and psychologically and extremely tedious. I was often left to wonder, ‘Why am I even here?”
