The Last True Story I’ll Ever Tell

An Accidental Soldier's Account of the War in Iraq


I went to university with guys that were paying for school by playing soldier a couple weekends a month. They loved it. Loved the weekends. Loved getting out of school debt free. Then we went to war and the government changed the deal. The National Guard was transformed into an active duty arm of the military. Reading John Crawford’s story hit home.

He tells the story of our Guardsmen who did not sign up to go to war. They were kept for longer tours than some of their career counterparts. They were not as well equipped nor supported. He tells a painful story from the point of view of a young soldier, not from a journalistic or political perspective. It is enlightening and informative.
