In this chapter, Ali Jawad Kadhem, Saddam Hatif Hatim al-Jabouri, Sami Hilali, Hayfa Kareem Sabi'a, and Rasim Hassan Haikel talk about their experiences during the Iraq war. Ali Jawad Kadhem had been serving for four years as a guard at a largely abandoned Iraqi airbase near the border with Saudi Arabia as the war began. Saddam Hatif Hatim al-Jabouri, a college student at a local university in Diwaniyah, remembers celebrating with friends and family at the time of the U.S. invasion. Sami Hilali worked with Time as a driver, bodyguard, and cook from the magazine's early days covering the war in Iraq. Hayfa Kareem Sabi'a and her husband were living a fairly comfortable life raising three young children in Baghdad's Jihad neighborhood at the time of the invasion. Rasim Hassan Haikel, aa Shi'ite and former Ba'athist, had served as a distributor of government food rations in his northern Baghdad neighborhood since 1997.
