‘And yet its stream ran through my heart’ | The Warrant Officer

By The Cove November 6, 2019


"‘In every life there are moments of definition, points in time when one’s life seems to have a purpose and meaning. A moment of clarity, of sharpness. In most cases it is the birth of a child, a wedding or even a funeral, for me though it came at 2140 hrs at a small Iraqi town called Ali Ash Sharqi about 60 kms north of Al Amarah in Southern Iraq"

In this tribute to a mate, The Warrant Officer reminds us all of the terrifying cost of conflict and the scars it leaves behind. A moving and well written article that will cause those who have served to pause, reflect and remember.
