Letters To Dougie

Dougie Hardesty's family business was enrolling in the military. His father did it, his father before that did it, and so did his father. So it wasn't a surprise when he did. But what Dougie didn't know, was that his trainer, Kelly Rose, was one of the best. She was one of the only trainers who went one on one with each of her men. She was tougher than half the men that came through the MEU Ground Combat Element. She never let any man phase her. She never let any one man get into her head. Untilthe tragedy..until Dougie..


5. Mini War Zone


As the heavy steel door slammed shut, I thought about what I had just done. I was sending an amateur into a war zone. But it wasn't a full on war zone, just a bunch of Pakistanis with big machine guns and trained fighters who have one motive: kill. Yeah. This was basically a mini war zone. But He could do it. Andrews did one thing that most guys didn't learn until the last months of training: He thought things out. He took every possible move down step by step in his head and carried out the best choice. He was a fast thinker. Although some of his fast thinking could have gotten him into trouble. I don't feel anything for him, at least I don't think, but I can't say that we didn't not have anything special. Andrews is one of the most teachable guys I have ever worked with and he isn't the slightest bit shy. His feelings for me must be pretty strong. unless he tries to make out with any girl he thinks he has some kind of connection with. Did I lead him on or something? Am I doing something to make him think I want us to be together?  What if he dies because of some stupid decision I made? No. He won't die. He's too smart. He can think his way out of it. Hell, maybe he will end up being a hero because of some decision I made. He is one hell of a leader. He could probably command all those men and bring them all out alive. Yeah. Little Dougie Andrews can make it through this,
