Ability to Adapt Quickly

Ability to Adapt Quickly

Everyone can be Lucky or Unlucky

Submitted by: Chris Ruhter, Lead Business Analyst – Mobile App Development, United States Marines (retired) There was a firefight a few hundred meters off during the night my artillery unit, 1st Battalion, 11th Marines, left Baghdad. It was around the end of April or very early May 2003 when we got the orders to pull out.
