Specialist Riley is on his second tour in some godforsaken place in the Middle East. He can't remember where it is.
He's four months into a six month tour. Though he hears the tour might be extended to twelve months. He hears a lot of things. Most of them aren't true, and most of them take place in his crumbling mind.
