Matthew Borczon


Never talks

about his

time in

the Army

but he

told me

once he

was called

back into

service to

help identify

American bodies

to tag

and ship

back home

he told

me this

story a

few months

after I

got back

from Afghanistan

the same

day he

left a

book about


the signs


on the

hood of

my car.
