Ben and I served in Iraq together in 2005. Most of the 7 months we were there, we were roommates & worked together.

Last week, one of my sailors handed me a book and told me I had to read it. I noted that the author and Ben had the same last name. A few more clues told me that he and Ben are brothers.

Found Ben on linkedin the other day and sent him a message to call me. He lives & works here in DC as well. He called me tonight and he's bringing his wife over for dinner next week.

It's great to be back in touch with him.
