37. Hmmmm
Well, if he goes (and it looks like he'll have a chance if the Army is saying 4 more years), then I will wish him the same as I do with anyone going over -- a safe return. I am reminded of a scene from "Gone With the Wind", when the first heavy casualty reports came in after one of the big battles. The town's doctor's oldest son had been killed and his youngest started blabbering about how he was going to enlist and kill a bunch of Yankees. Sounds like the Qualls kid may be thinking the same way -- he's going to go revenge his brother (can't say I don't understand why he might feel that way), but I don't think he really knows what he would be getting into. He may only be hearing the "patriotic" words of his dad. Pity the man would be willing to lose yet another child for this obscenity.
