A 22-year-old Marine sniper talks about fighting, coming home from Iraq

Doc Block: Did you
have any preconceptions about what life at war was going to be like? 
How did the reality of everything compare to those preconceptions? 

Orth:
The only thoughts I had prior to any deployment was that I knew I was
going to get shot at. I knew I was going to lose friends and that I
would see horrible things but, it still was shocking once I was there. 
I really thought I was mentally ready for what I was going to do and
see but in reality, I wasn’t.
