 I had my second interview with Aaron and also he got his pictures taken by Shawn McAfee. I learned something really interesting from Aaron’s second interview. He was talking about how the Iraqi people eat. When they have a meal, they have all the food in a large vat and grab from it with their hands, and if they are done with a piece of food, they throw it back in. Safe to say that the Army members had their own section where they would eat the food. It made me realize how hard it must have been for him to be thrust into such a different culture. I never really thought about that part of being in the Army, but I bet that’s one of the main struggles.

As of right now, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with the project but I don’t think that it’s unachievable.
