Real Combat Life: Helping Soldiers and Veterans Share their Stories

By The ITS Crew

If you haven’t heard about Real Combat Life yet, built to provide an outlet to share combat experiences, you definitely need to head over and check it out.

Not long ago they won a $25k grant through the Pepsi Refresh Project to help out their organization, and move them closer to becoming their own non-profit organization.

We think their idea is fantastic, as writing down experiences is often a good way to make a transition to civilian life easier to handle. Real Combat Life is a great way to support our troops and allow the public a glimpse of what life in combat is like.

Head on over and contribute if you have a story to share!

  • Are they allowed to start the stories with, “So there I was, no shit…”

    • Never mind. The top of the page says it all:
      “These are stories of real combat and sometimes in these types of situations, young men and women use language that some people might find offensive.”

    Thanks for sharing this guys. On Combat only leave you wanting to know more about what you already “know”.

    To Patrick: get people to share these stories is hard enough, telling them to censor the lang isnt serving any purpose.

    • No, the site is not censoring them. However it is telling readers that harsh language may be used, and they should just deal with it.

  • We love what Real Combat is doing. Thanks for sharing their story.
    I am the founder of a small blog called Project 365 Vets. We are honoring a veteran a day every day of 2012. We are currently seeking veterans who would be interested in sharing their stories. If you are interested or know of anyone who might be our contact information is on the site at
