From Muninn, Planes, Airports, and the Military:

As I started thinking about this I realized I had really mixed feelings about all this. Last Christmas when I arrived in Tulsa I saw a couple sit down next to a soldier returning from Iraq near the baggage claim and ask him sympathetically about the challenges of his military duty there. I remembered how difficult it seemed to be for him to put his experiences into simple sentences to share with these inquisitive strangers.

I have similarly conflicted feelings about the military, but they are starting to become more clear. I fear, though, that my writing will never be as vivid and moving as Muninn's.
