The first interview with Aaron went really well. He talked more about his life leading up to the decision to join the army, as opposed to what occurred overseas, but it was still very intriguing learning how he ended up enlisting. I was also excited to learn more about the All-Army Combatives, which is  He won twice in the heavyweight division in the world tournament, which is the championship that I described in my previous entry. It was neat to hear the passion in his voice when he was talking about the tournament. I could tell it was a big part of his life. He didn’t go deep into detail about the occurrences when he was in Iraq. He seemed to gloss over it. When I asked directly if he has any days that stick out in his memory, he said he’d rather not talk about them, that they weren’t his story to tell.
