I agree. I've also seen how the reality of being in the shit breaks some people. I do not wish my nightmares on any human being

It's just the way it is. It also exposes the truth that the guys on the ground live a different life than the guys giving the orders.

That's the sad reality of war. The sad reality of doing what's right. And it kills me, it really does, and I can't imagine what it's like for combat veterans, but I remain firm in my stance and I pray to God that it will stay that way even during and after I've seen combat.
Thanks from coke and Toto2

Someone's a sore loser.

The law is the law. That's the way I see it.

When did I ever say that!?! It's already been hell just to get where I am and I'm still three years of the same shit away from even getting a commission!

It'll be extremely difficult, but I like challenges.

I'm willing to die, both on the inside and outside, in service of my country and my fellow man.
