A soldier's perspective

A friend at work emailed me this morning... be sure to read the last sentence a few times.

Here's a comment from my son as he was flying home from Afghanistan.

"The death of a fellow soldier is something that is hard to describe. I have seen it, felt it and don't really care to discuss it much. Some I knew, some I will never know. Our plane back from Afghanistan carried the bodies of two fallen heroes. I didn't know who they were, but I wondered every time I look at their flag draped containers on the floor of the plane. A sober reminder to live a life worthy of their sacrifice."
