I’ve felt an aura for some reason.

I don’t know why that is. It all started when I left Phoenix. In Dallas people would tell me thank you and shake my hand. For some reason, people would touch me but I noticed that they wouldn’t touch anyone else. I don’t know why but for some reason I felt as if they felt warmth around me. Crazy it sounds. I was one of the few soldiers out of hundreds that got my hand shook but the Sergeant Major of the Army. That’s the highest-ranking enlisted member of the armed services.

I didn’t just recognize it with civilians; I also recognized it with other soldiers as well. I was being greeted everywhere I went. Some would greet not higher-ranking soldiers and me that I’d be with. I don’t know but I sensed something. Was it because the way I looked? Was it because of my posture? Is it my facial expression perhaps? I seemed to get more respect as well from other soldiers. I feel like more of a leader. Maybe it’s because I’ve aged. I’m always being asked for advice. What do I look like, an oracle?

I just got back to Baghdad a few hours ago. I have lots to post but I’m too tired to do anything right now. I’ll post some more tomorrow. I also have to get settled and I still have a shower to take. I have a new digital camera now so I’ll be posting a lot more photos from now on.
