28 year-old male from Fitchburg, MA
I am Specialist Patrick Ryan Gentry, currently deployed to Iraq with the 220th TC, from NH. I'm from a city in Massachusetts called Fitchburg (yes it is on maps, of like new england and mass!!). Been in country since Nov 05 and should be going home pretty soon!!
I am a down to earth guy (for the most part no one is perfect!). Just doing my part, and trying to experience all that I can, books and schools are for the cowardly, learn by doing and educate by example!! The sandbox (one of the nicer nicknames for Iraq) has treated me pretty well, seen a lot learned a lot!!

What doesn't kill you...Well since the last time I posted on RvB, I have lost a high school friend, seen more people injured in a two week period than the whole tour so far (these were also the first people to be serious injured from my unit since we got here), had sleeping problems, eating problems, and just about every other physical and physcolgical problem that could be thought up!! On top of that the daily life (or better put daily existance) is still as exhausting and irritating as ever!

Man life is awesome!! It's times like this when things seem to be all wrong and your feel like you are only a hair away from plunging over the edge of the bottomless abyss of shit, that life is the best. It's hard, it sucks, you hate it, but if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger. By making you stronger it makes the next thing seem less of a challege cause hell if you been thought this much already how much more difficult could that be!!
