ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' account of the condition of U.S. soldiers battling in Iraq war. Free men, boys really, on an unforgiving plain somewhere in the dust of Iraq, blood being absorbed so quickly, turning into the ugliest color of brown, gray and black and later beginning to make one God awful smell as the limbs that had deserted the blood began to mortify following the occasion of death. The young Puerto Rican boy had come to get away from gang wars in his neighborhood such as one never saw in "West Side Story." All Americans dying, spilling that peculiar blood for the American Dream, whatever that is.
