I met Tyler in Austin, TX March 2012. We only spent a day together, but he was very open about his experience fighting in the Middle East. He took me and some friends to a shooting range and we fired some assault rifles side by side, a first and last for me. The things he told me about combat were so layered with meaning that they were almost impossible to comprehend. This work is one attempt.
