Link: Magic Kingdom Dispatch, an Operation Urgent Fury memoir.

There are a lot of things I know I don't know. I've never jumped out of a plane. I've never been in a combat zone. I don't feel in my gut what the sound of a Spectre gunship overhead means.

But people I love have done those things and I want to understand them better, so today I am reading Magic Kingdom Dispatch, one Ranger's story about his experience participating in Operation Urgent Fury. I know I can never deeply empathize with all the things they experienced, but I want to try.
