After a two-week delay, here’s the beginning of the next story!
This is something of a first for these stories, in that it’s not based on something that happened to me, personally. Rather, it happened to an NCO in a unit that I was previously assigned to, on a past deployment. So, while I have no reason to doubt the general course of events, the depiction is based on my imagination and overall background knowledge. Full disclosure.
“Jundi” is the Arabic word for “soldier,” and also the rank of “Private.” It’s what American Soldiers in Iraq commonly refer to the Iraqi Army Soldiers, in general, as, and would not be considered particularly derogatory.
