I am war. I am neat and messy. I am action and boredom. I bring order through chaos. I end worlds and begin sovereigns and vice versa. I am equal part baptizer and corruptor. I am not easily explained. You must meet me to know me. I am war. Staff Sgt. Leo A Salinas, USMC This is in Marines magazine (April/May/June 2008) on page 15. Since I just received my copy (late) and thought it was an incredibly insightful statement, I thought I would share it. This was the opening paragraph to the article, Generations of War.
