Jonathan Moss


My Name is Jonathan Moss

And I will soon be a soldier in Iraq—again. Here’s what’s going through my mind.

Greetings from Fort Bragg

With a pistol in my hand. And a rifle.

I Am a Student Again

But prepping for war is not the kind of homework I’m used to.

I Have Finally Arrived

First in Kuwait, then Baghdad. Next stop, the desert.

“Only the Dead Have Seen The End of War”

“Only the Dead Have Seen The End of War” I hope to change that.


As a captain in the 451st Civil Affairs Battalion, all I think about is the future of Iraq. Here’s what my world looks like.

The Day Started Like Any Other.

Dispatches from the front.
Jonathan Moss salutes five fallen heroes.

There’s more violence every day.

The bombing of a mosque.

“Sir, he wasn’t really lying.”

I have only a few weeks to go.

Coming home.

I’m home. Finally.
