I wrote about private military contractors

Miraculously I found a former private military contractor (or “mercenary” to some) who lives quite near me so I was able to meet him in person, despite the short deadline. He was fascinating to talk to, and said some things he asked not to be in this piece, because they’re things his family and many of his friends don’t know about. I’m not about to repeat them here, but it just reminded me how much we don’t know about the people closest to us. Anyway, I tried to persuade him to write a book.
