17. I'm sure Ben was grateful to have had you as his platoon leader.

Your beautifully written tribute to Ben serves as a reminder of how much personal sacrifice is involved with being in the military. We humans don't have on/off buttons; our experiences stay with us.

My condolences to Ben's family.
