Iraq War information for character backstory
« on: April 27, 2022, 02:16:47 PM »
Hey all. A person in my story is a veteran of the Iraq war, who served with the National Guard in the years between 2008 and 2012. He's based on a friend of mine, who has since moved on from the Guard and joined the U.S. Special Forces, and cannot be reached at present (anyway I feel a bit strange bothering him about my little novel; he doubtless has more pressing concerns). On revising my story, I realized I don't know much about this fella. There is such a huge volume of information available concerning that conflict that I find myself overwhelmed. If anybody here can point me toward the right paths I should go down--whether it be through personal experience (in which case, if you're willing, let's get in touch), or relevant texts or documentaries--I would be very grateful.

Many thanks.
