People I knew were in the first gulf war. 5-6 people over there now. First one lost. Known him since we were 11. I was gonna join the navy when he joined the army but ended up being talked into college by my mom. I might be in some **** now myself if not for that.

I try to think he died for something but in all honesty I cant think of what. wasnt protecting america. Wasnt in some WW2 **** fighting for the world. Or even Vietnam supposedly fighting communism. Just over there doing....whatever. Having a hard time putting a positive spin on it...
Sorry Blaze. Lost more than a few myself. We have had our differances on this before. In all honesty I can't see anything good coming out of this one either. I have always been pissed at George Sr. for pulling us out when he did. Looking back now I see it as a blessing. War is all ****ed up anyway. Nothing can bring your friend back. I say a prayer for him and his family.
