In Part III, Justin Watt had just secretly reported his platoon mates for rape and murder, and desperately hoped he wouldn’t be found out. http://chrishernandezauthor.com/2014/08/06/war-crimes-hard-choices-and-harder-consequences-part-iii/ ——————— The day after John Diem’s report was forwarded to the company commander, the battalion commander and sergeant major went to the checkpoints where Cortez, Barker and Spielman were assigned.

Part III went up on Breach Bang Clear yesterday. ———————— Justin Watt’s personal turning point came barely a month into the deployment. He was on duty at a patrol base when the battalion commander arrived with his Personal Security Detail. Watt’s best friend Tyler Mackenzie was with them. Mackenzie had been Watt’s roommate back home […]


Part II went live on Breach Bang Clear yesterday. ————– PFC Steven Green had just told Sergeant Tony Yribe he murdered an entire family. To put it mildly, Green wasn’t the most credible guy in the platoon. Yribe didn’t believe him. However Green, who had not gone on the patrol to the house, was able […]


I must apologize to my legions of fans (all twelve or so). I’ve been extremely busy lately, and haven’t been posting as often as I should be. There’s no excuse, but there are reasons for this. One, my daughter just had another baby. She’s currently with us while her husband is out doing Marine Corps […]


I just wanted to drop a quick note and share this. A couple of weeks ago a soldier friend of mine went to a club and saw this guy.

Today is for all those who stood ready to charge across the last few hundred yards of enemy territory, under fire, to carry forward our country’s ideals and values. It’s a day I honor all veterans, but especially those who stood beside me […]


Just wanted to drop a last minute reminder that I’ll be speaking with two other authors and signing books tomorrow at the River Oaks Bookstore in Houston. I realize I should have done this earlier, but I’m really bad at this whole self-promotion thing. I now have printed copies of my book for sale. If […]


I just finished the book Fobbit by David Abrams, a novel about the dark underworld inhabited by all the cooks, bakers and candlestick makers who served in Iraq but never left the relative safety of a Forward Operating Base (Forward Operating Base = FOB, FOB inhabitant = fobbit). Abrams was a fobbit, and unlike many […]


Kevin Powers’ book, The Yellow Birds, hit the literary world last year with the force of an insurgent car bomb. Powers, who served in Iraq as a machine gunner according to his book flap bio, was a writer who had been there, done that, and wrote the book about it. The public could finally learn […]
