TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Age: 23 Residence: Baghdad, Iraq Married? With children? No wife, no children Occupation: Security Education: 1 year away from my BA in History Pets: None Religious affiliation / observance: Secular Last person / party I voted for: Have yet to vote Next person / party I will vote for: Republican party My history (100 words max): I grew up in Northern Virginia. Joined the Marine Corps when I was 17. After two years of being stationed in the States, I was stationed in Kenya, Afghanistan, and Paraguay over a three-year time period. I am now living/working in Baghdad, Iraq in the security field Family history (100 words max): My father is Irish-Catholic and my mother is Jewish. Her family was originally from Poland, but moved towards Western Europe during the first half of the 20th Century until the war, when they immigrated to the US My grandfather on my mother's side joined the US Army upon his arrival in the States, and was deployed as an infantryman in North Africa and Burma. I am told that I have family in Israel, but they would be distant relatives My connection with Israel: Not too much. I have only been there for a week, staying with a friend. It was a really cool trip though and I hope to head over again one day What I would take with me to a deserted island: My girl, lots of water, lots of sweets, a rifle, with tons of ammo.... If I could have dinner with any person in the world it would be: Not too sure. I think it would be a relative of mine from like 300-400 years ago though. I often read about how others lived from centuries past, but to hear it from the mouth of a family member from a time that distant would be very profound What angers you: Liberals. Not the open-minded democrat, but the bleeding-heart liberals who believe the world can exist without conflict, poverty, etc, or think that they can fix it all. It sounds nice you guys, but conflict is the nature of the beast. Get a grip What makes you happy: Hanging out with good friends, eating good BBQ, having some drinks, and talking history, politics, and current events. That is besides the obvious things that make a 23-year-old man happy, of course Last book I read was: Power, Faith, and Fantasy by Michael Oren Comfort food: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream from Ben & Jerry's My life five years from now: Being self-employed, hopefully making great money, with a rugrat running around the house You may not like it but I have something controversial to say: Though the Israeli military is a force to be reckoned with, it can not and should not be compared with the American military. Israelis often speak about their military and they tell me that it is the best in the world....I think that is a bit overboard. Maybe one day, but not even close at this moment in history folks Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest) 7 Click here to leave a message for Jason TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Meet all 'About Me' participants
