Outside The Wire: a U.S. Marine’s Collection Of Combat Poems & Short Stories Volume 1 & 2 

— Letters To My Son — a Collection

This blog is being created for me to write down thoughts that cross my mind, every couple days, couple weeks, once a month or pretty much whenever I want to share something. Ultimately my goal is to compile every entry for however long this blog exists into a book, to give my son when he is older. Not everything I write will be necsscarily directed to my son, I will be writing a lot about everything. I look forward to the entries that are to come.

Poetry

Poetry is a beautiful way for Justin Eggen to convey the message and experience of walking through Afghanistan riddled with IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices). Poetry is a marvelous way to bring OEF out to the reader and let them interpret the war we fought in the GWOT (Global War On Terrorism). 

Short Stories

Short Stories are a great break from the poetry- they let Justin Eggen really let loose and keep the pen moving. They let the author really give the reader literaure that brings them into combat, and the GWOT.

Outside The Wire

Outside the Wire is a term used by U.S. military operational forces when leaving the base for a mission. You’re going Outside The Wire for the mission, patrolling enemy held territory, scanning for IEDs. 

Why Poems?

Poetry is a very unique way to bring insight & perspective to the Global War On Terrorism (GWOT) that we as a generation fought overseas. I love Poetry, it’s a beautiful way to express and describe the feelings of being immersed in direct combat. 

Short Stories

Poetry is a great way to dig deep into the soul and feel the sun, dirt, and heart pounding Combat. Short Stories are a way for me to bring a lighter side to Combat and show the world how normal life can be overseas. I try to showcase the relaxing aspect of middle eastern deployments.
