13. I have two teenage boys
One of them turns 18 in January. I have a big problem. I'm
scared for them. If our nation is threatened by a hostile
force, then by all means, my sons have the obligation to
protect their country, and I will back them 100%. If my boys
are going to die in battle, I want them to die for our
country, not someone else's who doesn't even appreciate what
we are trying to do there.

I served with the 1st ID myself back in the seventy's. Back
then it was the right thing to do. Now each evening I see our
boys laid up in the hospital without limbs etc. and it worth it?
