Former Blackwater security guard Matthew Murphy and now-indicted ex-colleague Paul Slough were friends, having survived the war in Iraq together, creating a bond that under different circumstances might have lasted a lifetime.In three days of testimony, Murphy became the first Blackwater security guard to testify against his former associates in a trial expected to take months.The plan that day nearly seven years ago was that the Blackwater convoy of four heavily armed vehicles including Murphy, Slough and 17 other guards would come to the aid of a separate Blackwater convoy, and that both would return to the safety of the Green Zone.Before that day, the guards in Raven 23 got along, Murphy said.A former Marine, Murphy, now 37, said he ended up returning to Iraq and working for Blackwater after having grown bored with civilian life.
