Sat in on a question panel with Sebastian Junger and MAJ Dan Kearney (the journalist who shot Restrepo and the CO of Battle Company) today. I spoke with MAJ Kearney and found out he’s close friends with my cousin. He told me if I ever needed anything to not hesitate to contact him and to let him know if I’m ever in his area.

Getting to meet one of your role models is pretty awesome, but it’s even cooler when they offer to start a relationship with you.

Excuse me while I fangirl in my room.
