As I was reading the DOD Casualties list tonight...all I could think is that these guys are just too young to die.
I know, I know...so many young men died young during the Vietnam Conflict and all the wars for generations before....
But as I read the articles, these young men are the age of my son, John. They graduated from High School on or around 2007, and have chosen to serve our nation.
So many mom's with broken hearts. So many babies who will never know their parent. So many brothers and sisters, who have lost a best friend. So many......
Yes....for generations this is just the way it has been. Oh how different it is, when it hits so close to home.
May Almighty God bless and protect every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine.
Dear God in Heaven, please bring my son home whole in body and mind.
